Students in the biomedical sciences program hosted tours of the gross anatomy laboratory for high school and college students in April. The tour program started modestly over a decade ago; in 2001 approximately 200 students from eight local high schools visited the college. In contrast, this year saw a record number of lab visitors — more than 4,200 high school and college students in just two weeks. More than 3,400 high school students from 66 high schools came from as far north as Merrill, Wis.; as far west as La Crosse, Wis.; and as far south as Naperville, Ill. What began as an enrichment opportunity for a handful of high schools has developed into a capstone event for thousands of high school and college students, according to teachers and professors accompanying the various groups. In addition to the lab tours, many groups received science presentations from faculty members as well as information about the majors and programs in the college.
