Body Carnival: The Science and Fun of Being You

 

Body Carnival: The Science and Fun of Being You Exhibit uses carnival-themed components to explore the connections between perception and the laws of physics within the human body.

 

Visitors can learn about themselves while investigating force, light, color, balance and more.

 

You can crawl through a giant artery to see (and hear) how plaque build-up effects your blood flow. Test your balance as you walk through the 10-foot long Dizzy Tunnel, which simulates a rotating star field. Put on a pair of vision-distorting goggles and discover how sight affects the ability to walk straight. Experiment in the House of Color with different sources of light. “Hear” through your bones and muscles while learning how these transmit sound, and more.
