you ever wondered what our body does to our food after
we put it in our mouth? Come to ECHO's Family-Scientist
Labs this summer and discover all about our body-systems
in detail using experiments, dissections, lectures, hands-on

lab focuses on a new body-system each week and runs 45
minutes to 1 hour.
The lab portion of the Family Scientist program takes
place in the University of Vermont Rubenstein Laboratory
which is adjacent to ECHO.
Participation is free with admission to the Our
Body: The Universe Within exhibit but space is
limited – so call us and sign up today for tickets to
the exhibit and to reserve your spot in the labs.
Because of our work in the lab we ask that at least one
adult attends the lab along with your young scientists.
