Friends of the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation had a fabulous time at “Dining Under the Microscope”, an interactive experience hosted by Youth BIOlab Jeunesse at the St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre.
The hand-on experience provided by Steve Jones, Director of the Youth BIOLab, had donors re-living their days in science class surrounded by beakers and microscopes. Every guest had the opportunity to learn more about heart health, look a live heart cells and take a closer look at the inner workings of a pig’s heart! The Youth BIOLab provides hands-on science experiences for Grades 4-12 students. This school year, more than 4,000 students will have experienced science in a whole new way at the RBC Youth BIOLab Jeunesse.
