Twenty one 5th year Biology students visited The Real Bodies Exhibition in the Ambassador Theatre, Dublin on Wed. 10th of May. The students were treated to a magical trip through the Human Body, where every tissue type, organ and system from actual bodies is ingeniously and respectfully preserved. The trip brought to life much of the material the students are taught in the classroom, and may even be the catalyst to encourage some students to pursue a career in this or associated fields!
