The VIVIT experience was a fantastic opportunity, which gave the students a chance to get hands on and see the dissection of the human anatomy.
The VIVIT experience
was hosted at Boston College’s Peter Paine Performance Centre and delivered by
clinically trained and highly qualified presenters giving students a journey
through the human body like never seen before.
Split into sessions, more than 100 students from both Boston Grammar
School and Boston High School participated alongside Boston College’s Health
and Social Care, Science and Sport learners in discovering more about the body
we live in.
programme of the experience was developed to meet the requirements set by
national examining bodies and covered a variety of areas including the human
anatomy, the cranial cavity and abdominal cavity.
anatomy of a spent swine, which is identical in size and shape to that of a
human, the experience is as close to the real thing as many of the learners
will get. The day incorporated a variety of exciting demonstrations and hands
on practical sessions all backed up by theory and discussions on real life cases.
Boston College’s Level 3 Medical Science learners, Annalise Boothby, who has a
keen interest in studying the human body said, “This experience has definitely
helped with my studies. It has been very insightful and has been a great
opportunity to further develop my knowledge of the human anatomy. Getting hands
on and seeing everything in person has helped so much more than just looking at
images on paper and learning the theory.”
College’s Programme Area Manager for Science and Animal Care, Vicky Booth, said
“It has been a very positive learning experience. The learners enjoyed finding
out how the body works with a more hands on approach and it was a unique way of
linking the theory from the classroom to a practical situation.”
