Wednesday afternoon, July 15th
Dr. Lee Cartwright introduces us to the topic of eggs and embryos.
We were given eggs in different stages of development.  After carefully peeling the shell off and placing the embyos in bowls of warm water, we were able to identify parts of the organism and monitor the heartbeat.

Though not for all ages, the activity brought up several additional points that must be considered by the instructor such as living embryos used in the study.
