AN educational operating theatre is bringing its live human interactive dissection show to an East Lancashire school.

Blackburn Central High School with Crosshill will see the Operating Theatre Live on Friday October 25.

Fresh from being seen on BBC’s Dragons’ Den over the summer, Operating Theatre Live are conducting the UK’s only touring surgical experience offering an educational experience matched to UK exam specifications.

Students will be taking on the role of a trauma doctor bringing the systems of the human body alive through dissections.

The event is aimed at 14 to 19-year-olds, who will gain the opportunity to dissect real specimens led by human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team of clinicians.

Mr Piri said: “I and my team guarantee you a breath-taking, unforgettable trip through the human body like never before.

“Each student will leave stretched and challenged having made measurable progress against the science specification, we've got them all covered.”

The programme challenges students to explore careers in medicine and healthcare in a mission to raise engagement in STEM subjects.

Students will work through a complete dissection of the human body, and be taught a variety of important clinical skills.

There will also be an opportunity to undertake some dissection for themselves.

With a post-mortem style experience, students will look at disease and pathology, working on real specimens using real surgeons’ tools.
