NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Hershey Public Schools received a grant of $100,000 from The Nebraska Department of Education and those funds went directly towards students success.

“I think you know having this table in place is going to give us a step ahead like the kids have said you can actually go in and see the pieces where they lay you don’t have to go through and kind of visualize from the diagram before this we were just using flip chats,” said Science Health Careers and Athletic Training Teacher at Hershey High, Doug Long.

This table called the “Anatomage” provides students with in depth perception of a real life body. They can inspect muscles, genetics, body systems, and more.

“Really it was just kind of what wed could see on the computer or just bones and he’d have to tell us where they are. With this we can see it in person actually and it’s just really opens your mind to what they really look like instead of just guessing,” said senior, Eli McConnell.

This gives students interested in the medical or athletic training field an opportunity to receive hands on learning.

“This you can dissect tendons and just get down further into the layers and be able to see behind more areas of tissue,” said senior, Anna Berntson.

Hershey Public Schools are the third high school in Nebraska to receive one of these tables.

“There’s a lot of younger students coming that probably don’t have the same, they don’t want to do the same thing or they may want to do the same thing but this is a really good thing for them to see and they can actually see what they’re probably going to see in the adult world,” said senior, Emily Brott.

With these funds they also have 25 iPads that will sync to the table so kids can be interactive with the table. The staff says they look forward to the benefit this will bring for students and their future.
