Murray Jensen presents Golden Femur

On Nov. 18, about 350 students from 10 high schools across Minnesota converged on the University of Minnesota for the culmination of their College in the Schools (CIS) class. The students competed for the Golden Femur, awarded to the team that created the most imaginative, best-produced video explaining a specific concept in anatomy and physiology. And the winners are ...

First Place, Golden Femur: Hopkins High School
Blood cells

Second Place, Silver Scapula: Eastview High School, Apple Valley
Anat-O-Rap

Third Place, Bronze Ulna: St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists
H1N1 Update

Students developed a script and a storyboard, selected or designed an appropriate setting, and demonstrated creative shooting and editing.

Murray Jensen, associate professor in the Department of Postsecondary Teaching and Learning, developed the video competition as the faculty coordinator for the University course, offered through CIS.

College in the Schools at the University of Minnesota develops partnerships between the University of Minnesota and high school teachers and administrators. Students get firsthand experience with a faster pace of study and increased academic rigor while earning university credits.
