What does a pancreas do?  What is a “jejunum”?  Where are they even found? Join us for a journey through one of the longest systems in the body, the digestive system, and learn what goes on “once you swallow those french fries.” Through the use of models, hands-on activities and a demo-dissection, you’ll learn how things work and where things happen, once your dinner leaves your mouth.

Program Instructor: Christy Flint & Deb Bailey, Coordinators for Micro World investigate Lab.
