Science + You

Equals fun and learning for everyone!
Sunday, September 22, 2013 to Sunday, April 27, 2014

Thank you to our sponsors for bringing Science + You to the EcoTarium.  The exhibit is now closed.

Designed as a real-life -- but child-sized -- laboratory,  Science + You allows children to explore how scientists impact health and wellness.  Through interactive machinery, processes and technology, Science + You opens a window into the world of the research scientist and, through fun activities, shows how science keeps our bodies healthy. 

So, put on your lab coat and join us for a fascinating, hands-on journey through the laboratory:

  • Try out the sealed glove box and see how you can handle laboratory equipment and measure substances wearing super thick protective gloves
  • Mix and separate liquids and solids using special machines just like ones in real labs
  • Get a real up-close look at a variety of natural and man-made items through specialized Wentzscope and video microscopes
  • Solve the healthy lifestyle puzzle, and learn about the importance of nutrition, exercise and rest
  • Have fun cooking up a "healthy soup" in the test kitchen
  • And more!

Take the Science + You experience with you!
