Laura Martinez, 16, of Denver smiles as Antonio Gallegos, 17, of Colorado Springs jokes during dissection of a dogfish shark at the Colorado Center for the Blind.

The Colorado Center for the Blind and Arapahoe Community College again partnered to give sight-challenged students from the Front Range a chance to get hands-on science experience — by dissecting sharks.

The center hosted about 40 students Friday for the class, taught by ACC biology professor Terry Harrison since 2005. Students who are visually impaired or blind participate in a part of science class they’d otherwise miss: dissection.
