YRMC had teachers and students in mind when we decided to bring MEGA Body and MEGA Heart to our community for Celebrate Life Health Expo 2019.
These large-scale, interactive, educational models of the human body and heart are designed to teach people of all ages about the risks, symptoms, nature and causes of various diseases.
While MEGA Body and MEGA Heart are excellent teaching tools for any grade level, these models are perfect for 4th and 5th graders.
As educators, you’ll be pleased to know the manufacturers of MEGA Body and MEGA Heart worked with board-certified medical professionals to ensure the accuracy of the exhibits. A+ for them!
