The world famous Dorney Lake National Rowing Centre will be the scene of some gruesome goings-on this summer - but it is all in the cause of education.

A live 'post mortem' will be carried out at the famous Olympic venue near Eton College, aimed at letting medicine and dentistry students have a live human dissection experience.

The event on Wednesday, August 14 has been organised by the company VIVIT, set up by former science teacher Sam Piri who became famous when he appeared on television's Dragon's Den,

He persuaded the famously hard nosed entrepreneurs Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones to back his enterprise.

Sam's dissections are carried out using a synthetic outer body - but the organs that are exposed after he peels back the skin are real and come from a pig.

The event delivers in-depth content aimed at those studying anatomy, physiology or pathology at an undergraduate level. This is open to all students across Windsor and the surrounding areas.

It is also open to any person who is interested in the human body, disease or medicine as a whole.

The experience is carefully matched to AQA, Edexcel, OCR and international A Level specifications as well as level four undergraduate anatomy modules. Tickets include online access to VIVIT'S cadaveric image bank and an e-certificate to download for a UCAS personal statement.

Tickets at £99 can be purchased online via The VIVIT Experience website
