NOTE: THIS STORY CONTAINS IMAGES THAT MAY BE UNSETTLING TO SOME READERS.


SACRAMENTO – Thirty-six Clear Lake High School students, led by registered nurse Rachelle Maher and three chaperones, recently took a two-and-a-half-hour bus trip to visit the “Bodies Revealed” exhibit in Sacramento.


The exhibit offers an up-close examination of the human body in a manner unique to public display.

More that 200 separate exhibits ranging from individual internal organs to full-sized examples of the circulatory, skeletal and muscular systems at various stages of dissection are viewable from multiple angles.


The students maneuvered through nine galleries while listening to individual, handheld audio devises that access prerecorded information describing details for each item on display.

The exhibition has been designed to change the way people see themselves.


“The educational impact of the exhibition is immeasurable,” wrote Dr. Roy Glover, chief medical director for Bodies Revealed. “For centuries, the medical community has learned about the inner workings of the human body through the sturdy of real specimens and now it’s possible for the public to gain an intimate knowledge as well.”
