Bone up on Bones
January 19, 2008 - May 11, 2008

Visitors explored the marvels of the human skeletal system and got an inside look at what makes up bone. This highly interactive health science exhibition focused on the connection between bone health and overall well-being. Visitors learned that bone health contributes significantly to their general health and that there are ways to positively affect bone strength throughout life, particularly during childhood and adolescence. The exhibit explored bone physiology, bone function, osteoporosis, and the importance of calcium, vitamins, and exercise to build and maintain bone strength.
