BRACE FOR OUTBREAK!
Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do?
What makes them spread so quickly?
Where do we look for the next one?
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.
The Smithsonian Institution exhibit Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World opens at The Health Museum on October 5th. Together, we can stop a future epidemic. Spread the word!
My son learned about DNA, bodily functions and fingerprints. These are all items than he has not fully learned in school.
My 8-year old son a positive experience, during a recent Health Museum visit. It was fun and he walked away with a curiosity about the human body and interest to learn more information.
Museum camps enabled my grandchild to learn many facts about the brain and have a hands-on experience. She also made new friends. A good way to start summer vacation.
