New technology is helping the students at St. Boniface get a 3D look at science.
Mrs. Starman's third-grade science class at St. Boniface Elementary in Elgin has been studying the food chain. To better understand how food moves through the chain, students dissected owl pellets, parts of the food the owl does not digest.
They also had the opportunity dissect an owl pellet virtually and to identify skeletal systems found within. St. Boniface students are performing this work on a Zspace computer, which the school has on loan. This computer allows students to see and manipulate 3-D images using special glasses and software, giving them a realistic view of what they are discovering.
