Science of Me!
The Science of Me invites children to explore both the biological systems that make humans fundamentally alike and the elements that interact to create a unique individual. Through engaging, hands-on exploration, students discover how food becomes our body's fuel, where oxygen goes when we breathe it, how our brains interpret the world, and what role DNA plays in making us who we are.
