So it seems that things are pretty busy at Sci-port: Louisiana’s Science Center these days with speed dating events and the opening of one of the most sought after exhibits of all time, BODIES REVEALED. That’s right… BODIES, the exhibition you would typically travel to Dallas or New Orleans to see…it’s here in Shreveport-Bossier!
If you’re unfamiliar with the exhibition, get ready for a speedy anatomy and chemistry lesson. Don’t worry… there’s no pop quiz later. BODIES REVEALED is an exhibition of actual human body specimens that have been, for lack of a better word dissected and preserved through a Polymer preservation process. This process allows the tissue to be permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber, therefore providing a real life display of skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, endocrine and circulatory systems presented in glorious and tasteful fashion. AHHHH Science!
If you’re thinking that all of that sounds boring, ridiculously academic or intimidating, let me put you at ease. Anyone who has a BODY will find this incredibly interesting, enlightening, fascinating and maybe even shocking. If I sound excited about this exhibit, it’s because I am… excited. It’s not every day that something this big comes to Shreveport-Bossier, and I’m proud that one of our local attractions is playing host from now until May 21.
