Grade 6 students from Lord Nelson School helped us celebrate National Biotech Week when they visited St-Boniface Hospital’s Youth BIOlab Jeunesse.

The students toured the world-renowned Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, donned gloves and National Biotech Week t-shirts, and got hands-on experience dissecting hearts in the BIOlab where they performed an aortic valve isolation and viewed live cells under a high powered microscope.

The day was sponsored by the Life Sciences Association of Manitoba, Intrinsic Analytics, Prairie Genome, and hosted by Youth BIOlab Jeunesse and St-Boniface Hospital Research.
