(FOX NEWS) – A Florida high school has found an alternative to the well-known, yet smelly and messy, science class ritual passed on throughout generations at U.S. high schools.
J.W. Mitchell High School in New Port Richey is the first school in the world to replace the guts and gore associated with cutting open slimy amphibians with man-made, synthetic frogs used for dissection labs that still have the mirrored organs inside.
Nearly 100 synthetic frogs were dissected by students on Nov. 20, according to a release by the company that created them.
SynDaver is a developer of synthetic human and animal models used for education and medical purposes.
“So kids are involved, they are in it, they are finger deep in frog guts, but it’s all synthetic, so the smell isn’t there, the stigma isn’t there, they are not opting out,” said J.W. Mitchell Principal Jessica Schultz, according to PETA.
