Pirates of the Human Being: Meet Your Microbial Mates
Students join our captain and cartoon sidekick, the parrot Polly, on an expedition to discover some of the amazing microbes that live in and on the human body.

Expedition Dissection: Spelunking the Lungs
Using a state-of-the-art, high-definition digital camera, scientific animations, and audience participation, students learn first-hand about the respiratory system and how to keep it healthy.

Built to Move
Check out the amazing movers and shakers of the human body, and pump up your knowledge of muscles. Learn the difference between heart muscle and skeletal muscle, find out how the muscles work together to help us move, and take a look at the nerves that make it all possible. Get your own muscles moving with a quick game of Simon Says!

The Heart Chamber
Get an inside look at the heart in this interactive dissection program. Four activity stations tell different educational stories about the heart: the heart is a pump, the heart is electric, the heart is a muscle, and the heart has its own blood supply. Dissected sheep hearts, authentic specimens, props, and fun activities round out each story.
