Meet Cyndi, the Science Center’s New Synthetic Cadaver
Do you know why the muscles in your body come in different sizes, shapes, and colors? How about your appendix? What does it look like and where is it? What does the gallbladder do?
Cyndi, our new SynDaver (synthetic cadaver), and our knowledgeable staff can answer all your questions about the human body, how it works, and how to keep it healthy.
Take a Journey Through the Body with Cyndi
SynDaver features complete and functional muscular, skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems – all made from materials that look, feel, and respond just like live tissue. Experiences can include dissections and other experiments to highlight a particular system of the body.
Invite Cyndi to your next science night or community event or book a SynDaver program for your field trip to the Science Center. Our educators will bring anatomy and physiology to life with fun, hands-on programs that feature the most realistic synthetic representation of human anatomy ever produced.
Meet Cyndi during the Science Center’s Explore Healthcare Career Days in March.
SynDaver programs are presented by Highmark Blue Shield in partnership with the Da Vinci Science Center.

Jane and her grandkids are sure glad it does. “If the Da Vinci Science Center didn’t exist, the kids wouldn’t have these opportunities to gain greater knowledge of science. Every parent wants to give their children the opportunity to achieve at their highest levels. By experiencing science at this level, kids are more encouraged, excited, and interested in STEAM fields.”
Join Jane and her family in supporting the Da Vinci Science Center tomorrow at 8 a.m. $10 can bring science to life for one under-served student. With Facebook’s #GivingTuesday match, $10 becomes $20 and one under-served student becomes two!
