This fascinating class with Dr. David Menton explores bone biology and unveils the intricacies of our amazing skeletal system. Did this all come together by dumb luck over millions of years? Or was all this intricacy orchestrated by our Creator’s intentional design? Anatomy is made simple in this small-group lecture and lab covering the amazing inner workings and functions of our bones.
Did you know that the bones of our bodies aren’t just strong and flexible? They’re also building and repairing themselves constantly. Bones may not look very lively, but our life depends on a boney skeleton that is an engineering marvel No bridge was ever built with girders like those found in bones!
Examine a full-scale model of an adult skeleton to see how the bones function together. Learn about boney topics ranging from infant’s cartilaginous skeletons to osteoporosis. Together you will examine bones at a cellular level using Dr. Menton’s state-of-the-art microscope as it projects the viewing field onto a screen allowing everyone to see.
Dr. Menton holds a PhD in cell biology from Brown University, a prestigious Ivy League school. He was associate professor of anatomy at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis for many years. Through his years of teaching he gained many anecdotal tidbits and stories to share about skeleton development, the growth plates in giants and more. Now he loves sharing his knowledge with Creation Museum guests.
Audiences of all ages enjoy Dr. Menton’s well-illustrated (and often humorous) presentations and have a blast—an osteoblast—in this fun workshop!
