Dr. Heinrichs is 2007 Marshalltown High School graduate
A local veterinarian provided real world experience to 7th grade science classes at Miller Middle School on May 7. Dr. Lindsey Heinrichs of Animal Clinic The Vet presented to the classes throughout the day with a focus on animal prosthetics.
The 7th grade science department is working on a Defined STEM project on animal prosthetics. The project goals are to expose students to real world applications and careers while working in a project based learning environment.
Students will be working on a technical drawing design of an animal prosthetic, then make a prototype out of clay. Heinrichs is a 2007 Marshalltown High School graduate who received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from Iowa State University.
