"It is a great exhibition for teachers to see, because educators have the amazing opportunity to enlighten, inform and inspire students to learn more about their bodies," said Cheryl Mure, Vice President of Education for Premier Exhibitions, Inc. "Teachers can take back what they have learned and share it with their students, including the risks associated with overeating and smoking."
Teachers will receive an up-close look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body.
The specimens are meticulously dissected and preserved through an innovative process, giving teachers and students the opportunity to view the complexity of their own organs and systems like never before.
Many of the whole-body specimens are dissected in athletic poses, allowing guests to relate to everyday activities.
A healthy lung is featured next to a black lung ravaged by smoking in a vivid comparison more powerful than any textbook image.
For complimentary admission, teachers will be asked to show a school or district identification card at the Box Office.
Additional guests may purchase tickets at the box office, online or by phone at 888.263.4379.
Free downloadable teachers' guides correlated to Arizona academic standards are also available for reference.
The guides are divided into different educational levels from kindergarten up to post-secondary, and feature activity and resource ideas.
Teachers can register to receive the Guide for their grade level at https://education.prxi.com/tgrequest.
