Disease Detectives - Opens Sept. 28
You hear about infectious diseases in the news - new diseases emerging, old ones re-emerging and resistant bacteria. What does it all mean Disease Detectives is a new traveling exhibit from the Science Museum of Minnesota that puts visitors in
the role of infectious disease-fighting detectives.
This immersive exhibition invites visitors to investigate a case by meeting the patient, interpreting their lab tests and exploring an environment to learn more about infectious disease transmission and prevention. Each case highlights a different mode of disease transmission and the relevant illnesses.
Touch: The Science & Health of the Human Skin - In Development
Touch is being developed in partnership with the American Academy of Dermatology and will be a 3,000 sq. ft. traveling exhibit that highlights the physiology, function, pathology, and sociology of human skin in a series of fun, engaging and educational exhibits. Learn what “type” of skin you have and how it reacts to the environment around you, the pathology and treatment of skin cancer, the art and sociology of tattoos and adornment, and watch a cut heal in super fast time on a giant hand.
