BODY WORLDS Vital at Life Science Centre, Newcastle. 

Opens Saturday 17 May 2014

BODY WORLDS Vital an awe-inspiring journey through the human body, celebrating its complexity, beauty and potential, makes its UK début at Life Science Centre this May. BODY WORLDS Vital brings together a collection of real human bodies, specimens, organs and body slices preserved through plastination, a ground-breaking preservation method invented by Dr Gunther von Hagens. During school visits, students will learn about anatomy, health, lifestyle choices and the body’s full potential by viewing real human bodies. The exhibition is also of interest to art and design students, and as a starting point for ethical debate.  Extensive educational materials are available to support your class visit to BODY WORLDS Vital, and Life is currently developing curriculum-linked workshops on bodies and health for every age group which can be booked alone or in combination with a visit to the exhibition.  To find out more visit or call (0191) 243 8223.
