In our Ladder sessions we talk a lot about everything from the brain and nervous system to the digestive system, from eyes and ears to teeth and organs. But how are all of those bits and pieces of our bodies held together where and how they’re supposed to be?
In our everyday lives, things like duct tape do a great job of holding things together, sometimes even things that didn’t start out attached; materials like wood and steel serve as the “skeletons” of houses, building and cars; you make use of hinges every time you open doors.
At April’s session of The Ladder, you’ll have the chance to learn about muscles, bones and joints – which serve some of those same functions of allowing movement, connecting, providing structure and holding it all together. But we bet there are some surprising functions of muscles, bones and joints that you’ve maybe never even heard about!
So use your muscles, bones and joints to get yourself to the next opportunity of medical fun and learning on Saturday April 11th at 12:30pm at the UROC building – 2100 Plymouth Ave N (Newton & Plymouth) in north Minneapolis – lunch will be provided! The UROC is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
Have a bulletin board or wall-space for info-posting? Print this off and post! Curious about what the Ladder is all about? See for yourself!
