Jones Futures Academy Receives Target Field Trip Grant Award

 Target Field Trip1

The Target Corporation believes some of the best learning opportunities happen outside the classroom.  Through Target Field Trip Grants millions of students are able to go on field trips. 

Jones Futures Academy received the Target Field Trip Grant which allowed the Health Science Anatomy and Physiology classes to visit the Health Museum and participate in an add-on experience, in the dissection lab. The students were able to explore the structure and function of the heart during this hands-on sheep heart dissection.

The learning experience serves as an opportunity for students to strengthen their vocabulary in terms of health science, to develop a better understanding of the cardiovascular system, learn about different professions, ideas and opportunities in the medical field, and encourage hands-on problem solving.
