Dissecting a Sheep Heart with Dr. Tommy Mitchell

This summer we’ve been excited to host our first Explore Camp, a five-day science day camp here at the Creation Museum. We just wrapped up another week of camp and we’re excited to see how much the kids enjoyed the hands-on activities and the science teaching from a biblical creationist worldview. In one of the activities, the students really got to the “heart” of the matter—they dissected a sheep heart, with medical doctor Tommy Mitchell. We did a Facebook Live video of this fascinating activity, and I thought I would share it with you.

As you can see, we had a lot of fun learning about anatomy while looking at the structures of the heart.

Explore Camp

I encourage you to save the dates for next year’s series of camps. We are hosting two five-day science camps, and, new for 2019, a three-day forensics camp with forensic scientist Dr. Jennifer Rivera. All of these camps are day camps, with both five-day camps featuring an overnight here at the Creation Museum as the campers study astronomy with Dr. Danny Faulkner of our staff.

You can find next year’s dates and more information about this unique biblical worldview science camp on the Creation Museum website.

Explore Days

But if you just can’t wait until next summer to get your kids involved in a hands-on science program that glorifies the Creator, consider one of our Explore Days. These are full-day programs packed with hands-on workshops that focus on one particular science topic such as forensics, astronomy, genetics, geology, botany, zoology, and more. Explore Days, designed for children in grades 4–12, are extremely popular, often selling out several months in advance.

See a list of all upcoming Explore Days and register on the Creation Museum website.
