This FREE health education event is designed to educate children and their parents about select parts of the human body and to learn about their functions, components, strengths and limitations, and ways to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
Just like in past years, kids will have the chance to explore larger-than-life-sized models of the heart, brain, lungs, ear, teeth, and colon. Kids can walk through a giant, inflatable model of the brain and check out the inflatable heart, getting an up-close and personal look at how these important organs work.
Back again is the Capital Region’s largest ear – at nine feet tall, eight feet wide and 19 feet long, it is hard to miss! Pulsating lights show how sound moves through the ear and the dangers of exposure to loud noises or music. The model, like all exhibits at Journey Through The Body©, is handicap-accessible.
