Auditorium Presentations

Adventures in Medicine and Science (AIMS) auditorium presentations take place in a 400-seat theater with a 17-foot high definition screen at Paul A. Young Hall on the Saint Louis University campus.

Students view human specimens in a "larger-than-life" setting as they develop an understanding of the structure and function of vital organs. All programs are presented by local health care professionals from different medical specialties.

Grade level: Middle school to high school students
Program format: Auditorium participatory presentation
Program length: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Time: 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.

Fees

  •  $6 per student if attending auditorium presentation only
  • $5 per student if a dissection or cadaver demonstration is scheduled after the auditorium presentation.

Note that the hands-on program after the auditorium presentation is a separate fee of $16 per student.

You have the option to schedule a cadaver demonstration or a dissection immediately following any of the auditorium presentations. If you are interested in maximizing your visit to our facilities in this way, fill out the auditorium presentation registration form and indicate which hands-on program you would like to participate in following the lecture.
