Live online web classes with Fizzics Education
Human Body Video Conference November 2013 from Fizzics Education on Vimeo.
Did you know that our partner Fizzics Education offer live online web classes? Video conferencing is available for schools across Australia and around the world!
This is a highly cost effective option for remote and regional schools but it’s not a fancy version of the old ‘chalk and talk’. Students get to run science experiments live during the video conference and teachers are provided with pre-workshop and post-workshop lessons to run.
Your kids will get all the benefit of a professional, interactive science event and with our new overnight satchel delivery option we can get specimens to you just about anywhere in Australia.
Pop over and have a look at all the gory bits on their website and while you are there check out the FREE resources they have for teachers.
Fizzics Education also currently deliver in-person science workshops into Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and also do Regional Visits.

A kidney like no other
I came to work the other day to find this email waiting for me. I’m pleased to see that even when we get it wrong we sort of get it right.
“This is a shot of the dissection of one of the porcine kidneys we sourced from you. As you can see it has a cyst. It was fascinating and the girls (and the staff) learnt so much. When it was dissected, it used urine, so we assumed there was a blockage – perhaps a stone. The girls handled and felt the difference between the healthy flesh and the unhealthy. I thought you’d be interested in our lesson.”
Porcine kidney with cyst
I’m not sure how we missed it when we were packing because we do check every organ that comes through, but in this case I’m glad we did.
Mr Vivi came back from a Chamber of Commerce talk the same day buzzing about this specky new machine they have at a nearby University. It allows the user to navigate and interact with all kinds of virtual environments – including body systems. I’m certain that it’s a fantastic, engaging and valuable educational tool but I’m just as certain that nothing is like experiencing the real thing in your hands.

The kids had a great time inflating the lungs & dissecting everything
Just had to let you know that we were absolutely thrilled with the plucks!!
They’re the best specimens we’ve ever had, & the kids had a great time inflating the lungs & dissecting everything!
We’ve never had plucks with the pericardium, kidneys & gall bladder before, & it gave us extra anatomical detail & discussion to go into.
Thanks for such superb service & quality! I’ll definitely be ordering from you again whenever we need things to dissect!
