Take a “nuts and bolts” look at the natural world. The Machine Inside: Biomechanics, explores animals and plants as machines built for survival, complete with pumps, pipes, levers, motors, springs and intelligence gathering devices.
The exhibition includes outstanding bilingual content that provides safe interactive engagement in engineering, medicine, biology and other STEM disciplines, inspiring workforce development in these fields. Visitors of all ages will investigate the marvel of natural engineering from a cheetah’s sprint to a shrimp’s punch, from a crocodile’s chomp to an owl’s hearing.
The Machine Inside: Biomechanics takes students and families beyond the surface of nature to explore the invisible workings within, using 80 specimens, large scale videos, digital interactives and safely spaced mechanical interactives and biomimicry innovations. By delving deep, speeding things up, slowing things down, and presenting anatomy and physiology of plants and animals. The Machine Inside: Biomechanics gives us a new appreciation for the machine inside all of us. This exhibit closes on April 18, 2021 so don’t miss it!
Put Your Heart Into It takes a close look at how the human heart works. Students will take their own pulse, play games to get their hearts pumping, explore heart-healthy habits and learn how to make heart-healthy food choices.
Cost: $8 per person (non-member); $5 per person (member) and under 3 years of age is free and includes museum admission, access to The Machine Inside: Biomechanics, and the Put Your Heart Into It (10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.)
