Discover the major body systems & how do my actions affect my body

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!
