Ryan T. (left) and Drew K. assist with Dr. Pieper’s demonstration.

Eighth-graders in Sarah Dorhauer’s science class at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School learned firsthand how the human heart works, thanks to a visit from Dr. Steve Pieper on May 6.

Pieper, a cardiologist at the Mercy Clinic Heart and Vascular Center, brought hearts from a cow, sheep and pig, and explained to the students how these hearts compared to a human heart.

Under Dr. Pieper’s direction, the hearts were then dissected to reveal their inner anatomy.
