I must extend my congratulations to the students, teachers, staff & administration of Bev Facey High School IV allowing the XIII (13) Science & Biology students to watch the introspective & interactive autopsy video. Furthermore, the reportage skills of Mrs. Thandiwe Vela & the Edmonton Journal were once again outstanding in this matter. My recommendation is that this video since Bev Facey has it be made province wide for use of all students in the Biology, Science & in particular the Forensic Science courses offered at many High Schools already, such as St. Gabriel Storefront Cybernetics Catholic School in St. Albert or the Alberta Distance Learning Centre in Barrhead.
The video should be available as a classroom instructional tool & of course IV students who must be home schooled due to learning difficulties &/or difficulties. There should never be any barriers II education. I am sure arrangements can be made IV this video to be distributed by getting in contact with the Centre of Science & Industry in Columbus, Ohio.
Until CSI: Crime Scene Investigation came out (set in the Las Vegas, Nevada operations theatre), I was always afraid of dead bodies and decay. This program with its educational & formulatic autopsy scenes helped me raise my scientific awareness instead (that & a severe crush on Marg Helgenberger who plays CSI Level III: Catherine Willows. I like her because shes just as smart as any of the male CSI's & her feminine side gives them fresh perspective in handling cases.) Thus proving that both males and females can be great scientists & that female and male science students should be given fully equal opportunities to succeed in their chosen scientific field of endeavour.
Let The Adventure Of Science Continue,
