Discover how your body extracts nutrients from food, and how it disposes of waste materials.  Follow the journey of a meal from mouth to toilet bowl. Find out how your kidneys keep you healthily hydrated, and how your wee can tell you when you need a drink of water. 

Through a series of gross but delightful demonstrations and hands-on lab activities students will learn about the workings of our digestive system, blood, and kidneys.

By the end of the workshops students will have discovered:

  • The different parts of the human digestive system - where they are, what they do & how they work together.
  • How our digestive system extracts nutrients from food and produces poo and farts!
  • How our kidneys filter waste products from our blood and make wee.
  • How to stay healthy by eating a balanced diet and drinking plenty of water.
