Body Worlds

On Saturday Jill got to go to the Body Worlds exhibit at the Science Center. The exhibit is real bodies that they have plasticized and cut in different ways so you can see the human body in different ways. The website says that it has over 200 authentic human specimens including whole-body Plastinates, organs and translucent body slices, and features a special presentation on the brain highlighting some of the latest findings in neuroscience on brain development, function and disease.

Jill hasn't stopped talking about it since she was there. Every day there has been something that comes up that she can give us some expert info on. Things from how long all the blood vessels in our bodies really could be, to what the human heart really looks like, and why we should exercise, and what a baby looks like as it develops before it's born. It's been really interesting to listen to her! She really learned a lot there! And she's been jogging every morning since.
