The Wind in the Bowels

Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre, Vantaa

  • 30.11.2012–1.1.2025

This fun and demonstrative exhibition teaches visitors about the structure and functions of a healthy digestive tract, and tells how our bodies get the building materials and fuel that they need from the food we eat.

 

The Wind in the Bowels exhibition features many different exhibits. Visitors can try on the organ vest or learn about the breakdown of nutrients in a fast-paced game that enables you to break down nutrients by striking them with enzyme balls. They can also take our quiz to test their knowledge of digestion or marvel at the functional surface area of the small intestine breaking wind has not been forgotten either!

This exhibition is opened as part of Heurekas main exhibition and has been designed in co-operation with the Finnish Medical Society Duodecim in honour of its 130th jubilee year in 2011.
