Description

(click here to see curriculum links)

A fun and interactive tour of the human body and some of the amazing (and disgusting) things it does. Using anatomy models, interactive demonstrations and audience participation we will explore major body systems, especially the skeletal system, muscle system and digestive system. Examples include: try to work as hard as your heart;  follow the journey of your food “from chew to poo”; explore the five senses – and a few more internal senses you never knew you had! 

 

Let us know what you'd like to see and we'll make sure it's included - use this program to help plug a gaping hole in the younger years of the revised national curriculum.
