How To: Dissect a chicken wing

Dissect a chicken wing

You've gotten enough satisfaction from gorging on fried chicken wings, so now it's time to learn the science of them. And not—we're not talking why they taste so freaking good, but how they work, pre-fried food. We're talking anatomy class, and if you can eat a piece of chicken, then you surely can dissect a chicken leg for educational reasons. Watch this video to learn about the chicken's triceps and bicep muscles, as well as what happens when the biceps and triceps contract.

If you're preparing this anatomy experiment for class, make sure your students properly wash their hands before and after, and dispose of the poultry correctly, so as to prevent biocontamination.
