Greensboro Science Center Hosts Creatures Of All Kinds, Including Humans

The Greensboro Science Center is the only institution in North Carolina to house a zoo, aquarium and museum under one roof, and it's one of a handful in the country. The Science Center has been in the Triad since the 1950s, but recent expansion has dramatically grown the facility into a true 3-in-1 destination.

There's a lot to see with animals like a giant Pacific octopus, sharks, tigers, lemurs and wallabies. Showcased in the museum are massive dinosaur models, and a new exhibition adds another animal to the list: the human. 

The Bodies Revealedexhibit allows visitors to study nine preserved human bodies, and it runs through June.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Glenn Dobrogosz, executive director of the Greensboro Science Center, and Kelli Crawford, an educator with the Bodies Revealed exhibit. 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
