Moyers seniors visit the Bodies Revealed exhibit at the Science Museum Oklahoma
WILBURTON, OK (Aug. 1, 2017) – Thirteen Moyers GEAR UP seniors recently traveled to Oklahoma City to view the Bodies Revealed exhibit at the Science Museum Oklahoma. Developed by Premier Exhibitions, Inc., the exhibit is a must-see during its limited engagement in Oklahoma City.
The exhibit shows the various internal organs and body parts that have been preserved and displayed in a way that highlights different areas throughout the exhibit. The exhibits contains partial and whole bodies that have been skillfully preserved and allow students as well as adults to see the entire body in an up-close manner where they can see nerves, muscles, veins and arteries, as well as the bones and whole internal organs that complete the human body.
“The exhibit was very educational,” said Moyers senior Connie Gonzalez.
Many of the whole body specimens are presented in vivid athletic poses that allow visitors to better understand their own everyday motions and activities, while other specimens illustrate the damage that can be caused to organs by habits like over-eating, lack of exercise and smoking.
Senior Laney Heath was excited to see the exhibit. “I’m glad I now know what my body looks like.”
The educational field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College GEAR UP. Participating schools take two field trips each academic year—one to tour a college or university and one that is cultural/educational in nature.
