For Educators

In Depth: Autopsy

Follow a videotape of an actual autopsy accompanied by live narration by a pathologist resident from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Participants must work through the "case" and solve for cause of death.

The autopsy is shown from the Y-incision to the removal of the brain and is 90-minutes long. School and community groups are welcome. Individual tickets are available for non-school audiences and individuals to watch from COSI's Galaxy Theater

As a human anatomy teacher, this is truly the culmination of my curriculum! Awesome - great opportunity for our students.

In Depth: Autopsy is a multi-point program that connects up to 6 schools at one time, including an audience at COSI for groups and individuals. Questions will be asked in a round robin, facilitated format. COSI can connect schools through IP (H.323) videoconferencing or on COSI’s Ustream channel.
