About the Exhibit:

Healthy Planet, Healthy You will explore a variety of topics including air quality and the respiratory system, renewable energies, water quality, soil, photosynthesis, food webs, and more! Guests to the museum will find hands-on activities featuring descriptions and interpreting the Air Quality Index, as well as view healthy and diseased lung samples under microscopes. Young engineers can build windmills with different types of materials to see if any are more efficient than others. Guests will observe different types of water and soil samples and learn what different tests can tell us about the health of an area. How does air, water, sun, soil, plants, and animals all connect? Find out by building food webs and seeing how the elimination of a single organism can affect an entire ecosystem.
