Pupils Investigate Post-Mortem Live

On Saturday 24th February, Sixth Form pupils joined members of the public in taking part in an usual, yet gruesome experience: ‘The Post-Mortem Live’ show. Attendees were presented with a life-like model cadaver, alongside a murder case scenario, with clues and forensic specimens to help solve the case.
With the surgical tools and organs [of porcine origin] provided, pupils were able to follow the pathologist’s lead and examine body parts in detail, focusing on the heart, lungs and digestive tract. Budding medical students and those interested in a career in forensics, crime and psychology attended, as well as members of the public with an interest in all things gruesome. It certainly was a different way to spend a Saturday evening. Thanks go to Jo Maule for accompanying the visit.
Sophia A commented on the experience: “It was a fabulous experience! I particularly enjoyed the parts involving dissection, as it gave me the opportunity to learn and see the human anatomy up so close.”
