Southeast Elementary Students will get a tour of the human body on Wednesday at an exhibit being set up at the Southeast High School in Cherokee, Kansas. Body Venture is an interactive exhibit that tours the state of Kansas in the hopes of teaching students to eat smart and play hard.
The students will experience “brain waves” and will be “swallowed” through the esophagus, move on to the stomach then the small intestine, where they are “absorbed” into the blood. Then they follow the path of nutrients to the heart, lungs, bones, muscle and skin.
The traveling Body Venture exhibit was developed and is operated by Child Nutrition & Wellness, a division of the Kansas State Department of Education.
The exhibit was set up at Southeast High School Tuesday after school.
