Eighteen students from the Kinesiology Club and anatomy classes explored the wonders of the human body and marveled at its elegance and complexity at the Body Worlds Exhibit at the California Science Center. Faculty members Kimberlee Kelley, Guck Ooi, and Laura Vasquez chaperoned the trip featuring real human bodies in sickness and health.
The exhibition displays preserved human bodies dissected to show bodily systems. Plastinates included an obese body slice, a smoker’s black lung, a liver with cirrhosis, and hardened arteries that demonstration the impact of ill health. In contrast, dancers, sports figures, and a woman bearing life illustrate how bodies function when lifestyles support good health and well-being.
The trip, funded by the Student Development Fund, proved fun and educational.
