ECHO - Our Body

(Exhibit featured at ECHO April 14-September 3, 2012)

Our Body: The Universe Within was presented by ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center and co-hosted by the University of Vermont College of Medicine. Both ECHO and the UVM College of Medicine supported this exhibit, because both institutions are committed to teaching not only the next generation of scientists and physicians, but the Vermont community, the region and beyond. In jointly supporting this exhibit, UVM and ECHO aimed to inspire all visitors to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the body's form, function and uniqueness.

A wide selection of teaching materials were made available to help people understand the various systems of the body highlighted in the exhibit.
