Hands-on Anatomy School Workshop

Students will gain an appreciation of the complexity of the human body and life in this fun school science workshop when your classroom becomes a biology lab! Students will use microscopes and hands-on models to look at major body systems and how the five senses work. Importantly, they will learn how their actions can affect their body.

Where is heat in your body conserved? How do the lungs work? What happens to food when I swallow?
This workshop also covers basic hygiene practices, nutrition, reflexes, inheritance and the components of skin, blood, hair and more.

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!
