Homeschool Workshops

New Homeschool Workshops now available!

By popular demand, the Michigan Science Center is now offering dissection labs over the summer.

Workshop times: 10:00 am – 11:30 pm

Capacity: 25 students

Lab fees are associated with the cost of the specimen.  Dissections are best done with a partner and that is reflected in the PARTNER price.  Students who wish to dissect their own specimen will register for the INDIVIDUAL price level.

ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  Registration ends two weeks prior to the dissection lab date.



The heart is one of the most important muscles in our body.  Come learn about the functions of the heart and use this knowledge to help you understand the anatomy as you dissect a mammalian heart.

PARTNER: $15 per student

INDIVIDUAL: $25 per student

Recommended for ages 6-8     REGISTER


We can understand how our bodies work by looking at the anatomy of animals.  Frogs have similar anatomy to humans and make an excellent model for us to explore how all of our organ systems work together.

PARTNER: $15 per student

INDIVIDUAL: $25 per student

Recommended for ages 9-13     REGISTER


Pigs are mammals, just like us.  Their anatomy is similar, if not the same as ours and make an excellent specimen to examine to better understand human and mammalian anatomy.

PARTNER: $40 per student

INDIVIDUAL: $50 per student

Recommended for ages 14-18     REGISTER
