ECHO Family-Scientist Lab: Cardiovascular System

Wednesday, August 8, 2012
Start: 1:00 pm




Moving oxygen, hormones and nutrients around our body keeps us alive. Come explore how blood moves around your body with this exciting lab that will examines what's at the "heart" of our cardiovascular system. This lab will begin with a short lecture followed with a heart dissection. To make your reservation for a Family-Scientist Lab call 877-324-6386, ext. 100.

ECHO is excited to offer these ECHO Family-Scientist Labs this summer. Each one hour lab will include a short lecture and hands-on activity that focuses on a specific body system highlighted in the Our Body: The Universe Within exhibit. After lab time there will be short guided walk-through of that system in the exhibit. The six themed labs are open to people who have purchased tickets to Our Body:The Universe Within for that day. However, space is limited to 25 participants (sign-up is on a first come, first served basis). The intended audience is 10 and up, though all ages are welcome. We will be working in a real laboratory so we ask that any children attending be accompanied by at least one care-giver.

Science Labs and Topics:


Muscular/Skeletal System, July 11

Digestive System, July 18

Nervous System, July 25

To reserve call 877-324-6386, ext. 100 or buy tickets online here.
