Have a teen age 13 to 18 that's interested in science and anatomy? A July 10 dissection workshop at the Rock Island Public Library can help them develop that interest.

 If you have a teen that’s interested in science and anatomy, registration is available for a free Dissection Science workshop at the Rock Island Public Library on July 10.

The hands-on dissection workshop is offered from 4pm to 5 pm on Monday, July 10 in the Rock Island Downtown Library Community Room, 401 19th Street. Due to the use of scalpels, the event is limited to teens ages 13 to 18.

Under the direction of science educator Andrea Martinez, teens will learn about respiratory, cardiovascular, and digestive anatomy by dissecting a variety of sample specimens. All tools and materials will be provided. The event is free with registration required due to limited space and materials. To sign up, call 309-732-7315 or visit the entry on the library events calendar. 

This event is presented through a Project Next Generation grant to introduce pre-teens and teens to careers and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM.) Project Next Generation grants are funded using Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds provided to the Illinois State Library by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
