So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27, ESV)
Human anatomy is an absolute marvel of design and the pinnacle of God’s creation. The complex combination of muscles, bones, organs, and tissues is a symphony that cries out for a Creator God. Join us for an in-depth look at some of the major body systems with hands-on dissections.
Open to students in grades 4–12 (ages 9 and up).
Explore Human Anatomy is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
