Where does all that Xmas food go?

Do you know how your digestive system works?

Alimentary Adventures is an exciting new inflatable eight-metre long through-tunnel that allows visitors follow the journey food takes from the mouth all the way through the digestive system.

A highly visual and tactile experience, visitors enter through the mouth and walk through the entire digestive system, even getting to experience the highly folded finger-like "villi" of the small intestines (children won't be able to resist poking at these).

Alimentary Adventures was developed by the Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre, UCC with funding from Science Foundation Ireland's Discover programme for Science Week 2013 and will be at the BT Young Scientists' Exhibition at the RDS in January.
