Let us go deep and travel across our body systems and to discover how DNA programs the body’s cells to form the circulatory and nervous systems while watching “THE BODY CODE” movie. As an alternative our scientists can ride through the body to watch how patients can survive from a mysterious viral infection while watching “MICROCOSM” movie.

THE BODY CODE

Fly through the carotid artery; explore the eye, brain, ear, and heart. Then, shrink into a cell to see its nucleus and DNA within. Discover how DNA programs the body’s cells to form the circulatory and nervous systems. Then watch from inside as we use lasers to fight disease at the cellular level.

Running Time: 22:00 minutes
Subjects Covered: living things are made of cells, types of cells, cell function, brain function, how changes to genes (mutations) may affect the function of the organism, structure of DNA, role of DNA and chromosomes in traits passed from parents to offspring.
MICROCOSM

At the Center of Miniaturized Medicine in the year 2053, you’ll shrink down to the size of a microbe and get injected into a patient who is suffering an infection from a mysterious virus. Produced in cooperation with the University of Utah Medical School, this high-speed immersive adventure is not only exciting, but educational as well. Traveling from the base of the eye to the interior of the heart, you’ll explore exotic ports of call in CMM Probe Alpha with its robotic outboard scout vehicle. As you piece together the clues the virus has left behind, you’ll race against time to save the patient on your roller-coaster ride through the body. Laser battles, genetic weapons, and lots of surprises along the way, make this a show audience will want to experience again and again.
