Summary

What’s more important than your brain? This quintessential organic computer is responsible for every thought, every motion, and every response your body makes. Life itself is determined by brain activity. It defines the very essence of being human. With credentials like these, it’s no wonder that the brain is the subject of Evergreen Exhibitions’ blockbuster touring exhibit, BRAIN: THE WORLD INSIDE YOUR HEAD.

Summary

Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology, and even our viruses. Join us in learning how people fight epidemics - even before they start! You’ll explore the connections between human, animal, and environmental health, dive into case studies and personal experiences from epidemic-fighters from around the globe, discover how outbreaks have affected the Greater Houston Area, and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak.
