Part 2: Investigating the internal structure of the heart

Heart dissection demonstration to investigate the internal structure of the heart for a Beginner's guide to Heart Health by the University of Reading.

In this video we look at the internal structure of the heart. You should still have everything set up from the previous step. If you haven’t, make sure you’ve got everything set up as it is listed.

There will be a discussion in the next step where you can share your thoughts about the exercise.
