WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Dissecting a cow's heart.
Most would find that disgusting.
But for Sophia Herbert, a fifth grader at Charter Day School, it was a dream come true.
Her experience was paid for with money from her successful Etsy business.
Sophia raised $600 with her "STEM Art by Sophia" shop.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which are subjects Sophia loves.
With the money, Sophia attended the Envision: NYLF (National Youth Leadership Forum) Explore STEM camp on the campus of Wake Forest in Winston-Salem.
Sophia joined us on WECT News First at Four to show us some of her creations. She told us she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up.
