Fallbrook Street School GATE students Eduardo Macias and Brandon Rodriguez use special tools to examine a pig

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Street School’s GATE program has been offering enriching after-school activities for qualified students in third through sixth grade.

The students recently had an opportunity to dissect a pig’s heart to learn more about the anatomy and functions of the heart. A veterinarian and two doctors assisted with this activity to help students identify the parts of a heart.

The students also had the opportunity to learn about the anatomy of an eye. Each student was given a cow’s eye that they were able to examine and dissect.

The GATE students also went on a field trip to the Vista Superior Court to participate in a mock trial. The students were all assigned roles in the case, all vital. A real judge presided over the “trial.”

Fallbrook Street School GATE students sworn in as (mock) witnesses at Vista courthouse are, Andrew Jara, Jenesse Fisher, Logan Cheaus, Teresa Arias, and Anthony Dircio.
