Saturday Serious Fun - Inside the Human Body
Investigate how the human body’s systems and organs work together. Each system has a different job - digestion, circulation, respiration and more. How many systems are required to make life possible? How are the systems inter-related? Listen to your friend’s heartbeat, learn what blood is made of, see how food is digested and more as we embark on a journey through the human body and explore the different systems that make life possible.
When: 1:00 pm Saturday, December 13, 2014
Suitable for all ages; FREE for members, regular admission for non-members.
