Hands-on Anatomy School Workshop

Students will gain appreciation of the complexity of the human body of life in this fun school science workshop when your classroom becomes a hands on biology lab. Students will use microscopes and hands on models to look at major body systems and how the five senses work.

Where is heat in your body conserved? How do the lungs work? What happens to food when I swallow?
Also covers basic hygiene practices, reflexes, inheritance and the components of skin, blood and hair.
Full risk assessments available on request. 

Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!
