Peek into a world of research devoted to studying the factors that impact our health and discover how our actions affect our own wellness. Perform hands-on experiments to test for yourself why health experts tell us to buckle our seatbelts, wash our hands, put on our sunscreen, and more.

Sun Safety

Lather up your hands with our custom sunscreen then use a special camera for a real-time demonstration of how sunscreen protects your skin from ultraviolet light. The results might just get you thinking about sunny days a little differently!

Crash Test Demonstrations

See a real-time demonstration of the difference a seatbelt and booster seat make for passenger safety. Watch the effects of a car crash on a dummy in a simulated car interior then view the impact in more detail with slow-motion video. Crash Test demonstrations are Tuesday - Saturday, 11:30am and 2:30pm.

The Lab

Explore the science behind our health as you perform hands-on experiments. Program themes change daily during the summer and weekly all other times of the year. View the daily experiment schedule.
