Upper-level SDC students deepen understanding of the body and its various systems by creating a life-sized, layered model of the human body. Systems such as the skeletal, digestive, cardiovascular, and nervous are represented using different materials attached to clear film (acetate). Each layer can be shown individually or when placed together, each layer is visible. The project is paired with extensive research and a final educational performance.
