#Bodyworlds exhibit at Arizona Science Center is amazing
Teacher braves science exhibit - Sports Medicine class visits "BODYWORLDS"
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of escorting David Hayward's Highland High School sports medicine class to the BODYWORLDS science exhibit in downtown Phoenix.
Mr. David Hayward teaches sports medicine classes at Highland, and my daughter is taking his class. When the fieldtrip was announced along with the usual plea for parent volunteers to accompany approximately 100 high school students to a science museum where there were "naked skinned people", I couldn't resist. An added bonus was the always fun opportunity to mortify my daughter with my mere existence.
The exhibition by anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens gives visitors a view of the brain's development throughout life. This limited engagement features more than 200 specimens, including entire bodies and individual organs.
