Heartthrob: What makes us tick

February 18

Included with admission

Join us at the Museum of Life and Science to learn about the organ that makes us tick: the heart! We’ll have a variety of activities to help you explore the anatomy and functionality of your own heart:

  • Create paper circuits in TinkerLab
  • Make heart-shaped diffraction desserts in The Lab on the second floor
  • Compare your active and resting heart rate
  • Use invisible ink to reveal the human circulatory system
  • Attend Animal Care Team Q&A sessions and observe as Museum animals interact with Valentine’s Day-themed enrichment items
