Anatomy classes are having "histology lab" for the next week or so, and are learning to recognize specific types of tissue by looking at slides with microscopes. The favorite tissue name so far is "Pseudostratified Ciliated Columnar Epithelium", which is found in the lining of our trachea.
The multimedia class launched their first episode of "DogHouse Connect" They were in charge of the creation of the name, logo, and everything else. We are on Facebook, twitter, Instagram, and snap chat. They developed the scripts, conducted the interviews, shot the footage at the events, and spent after hours of their own time editing. Doing all of the leg work will allow the next episodes to have more in them and hopefully be shorter on the turn around time. Check this out on the following link:
