On May 3 Lincoln-Way East High School students enrolled in anatomy and physiology classes and forensic science classes had the opportunity to view an autopsy via livestream. Lincoln-Way East science teachers first learned about the opportunity, called Live from the Morgue, in November while attending the Northern Illinois Science Educators conference.

Founder of the Autopsy Center of Chicago Dr. Ben Margolis welcomed students from Lincoln-Way East and Barrington high schools to observe the autopsy, form hypothesizes and ask questions throughout the process.

Students were able to use Twitter to ask questions as the autopsy occurred, allowing Margolis to answer their inquiries through video conferencing in real time.
