Healthy Living Choices:
Encourage students to make healthy living choices by interacting with models of organs and other anatomy. Learn about the effects smoking, unhealthy eating habits, and sun exposure can have on your body. And, have fun exploring the world of infectious disease with larger-than-life plush microbes.

Force & Motion:
What causes things to stop and go? Students will explore the laws of motion, work, and energy by performing fun and easy hands-on experiments. Investigate concepts like friction, reaction time, acceleration, and more by creating and testing student-led experiments.
