Tag alone with Bridges to Baccaluareate on a trip to the Liberty Science Center as we explore their Bodies Revealed Exhibit, and the rest of the exhibits and rooms at the Science Center.
Bodies Revealed presents real human figures and organs that reveal the wonder and beauty of the human form. The exhibition shows detailed views of human anatomy, from whole body displays to individual skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, endocrine, and circulatory systems. Unlike models that idealize the body through the eyes of an artist, this exhibition shows the body and its systems as they really exist, including natural variation.
The figures, skeletons, and organs in Bodies Revealed came from individuals who donated their bodies to accredited medical universities in the People’s Republic of China for the purpose of study and education. All donated bodies were examined by an anatomist and a biological anthropologist to confirm that they died of natural causes. A separate gallery respectfully displays the stages of human development in the womb. All of the embryos and fetuses died of natural causes before birth.
We will be meeting up in Lot 5 at 8am. Together we will take two Middlesex County College vans to the Science Center and we should be back at the college no later than 5pm.
