Our Body: The Universe Within is presented by ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center in partnership with the University of Vermont (UVM) College of Medicine. The UVM College of Medicine is the seventh oldest medical school in the United States. Since its founding nearly 200 years ago, the college has been dedicated to providing innovative medical education, conducting world-class biomedical research, and serving as a partner in caring for patients and their families.

Both ECHO and the UVM College of Medicine are committed to teaching not only the next generation of scientists and physicians, but the Vermont community, North Country region and beyond. In jointly supporting this exhibit, our organizations aim to inspire all visitors to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the body's form, function and uniqueness.

This page provides a wide selection of teaching materials to help people understand how to use the exhibit as a teaching tool, and how to understand the various systems of the body highlighted in the exhibit. Included here are seven videos, exclusively created by faculty experts at UVM College of Medicine, that provide an overview of the body systems featured in the exhibit, as well and printed materials for further investigation and education.
