Year 6 - Body Worlds
On Wednesday (7th November 2018), Year 6 visited the brand new Body Worlds exhibition in central London. Body Worlds is an exhibition with real skeletons, hearts, brains, lungs, other organs as well as showing the nervous system, respiratory system, digestive system and circulatory system. The displays are made of real human bodies, which were donated by the person before they passed away.
At the start of the exhibition, everyone was given headphones to listen to information on a special device, a little bit like an iPhone. It takes up to an incredible 1500 hours for the scientists to complete a single human body for the exhibit. The same has been done for animals and elephants take up to 3 years to be completed.
It was a amazing and inspirational to visit this exhibition and showed us things we would never have seen otherwise. Also, hearing all the information on the audio devices taught us so much about the human body and how it works. We loved it!
