Anatomicum Online 1

Join Surgeons' Hall Museums and Dr Jennifer Z Paxton for this hands-on celebration of the launch of the new book Anatomicum for those age 7+. 

Hear extracts read from the book, followed by activities exploring how your body works. Explore the vascular system, make your own lungs and get messy recreating the digestive system with bananas, crackers and fruit juice!

Jennifer Z Paxton is Lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh and Principle Investigator of the Paxton Lab, a tissue engineering laboratory. Jennifer has won the Wellcome Trust 'I'm a Scientist' competition twice (2013, 2018). She loves bringing the science of anatomy to a wider audience and working with primary schools to engage more children with the subject.

Jennifer has provided expert text for the new addition of Anatomicum which guides young readers through the human body, from the muscles we use to show emotion, to the delicate workings of the brain. With sumptuous artwork by Katy Wiedemann this beautiful book is a feast of anatomical knowledge. 


This ticket provides entry to the workshop for one child age 7+, who must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
