Presented in partnership with:
The exhibit is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health.
Developed with a Science and Education advisory panel of teachers and leading researchers in the field today, the educational objective of this exhibit is to familiarize visitors with the fields of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Depending on which areas of the exhibit you have the time and desire to visit, you should be able to learn several of the following key points:
This set of four activities explores the basic biology of cells-their form, purpose, abilities, and specializations.
Three activity areas let you learn about some of the research going on today and try your hand at some cool virtual experiments.
Hear first-hand leading researchers talk about tissue engineering applications today and in the future, find answers to commonly asked questions, and register your opinions on some of the ethical issues involved in tissue engineering and stem cell research.
Exhibit activities are designed for a wide range of ages and learning styles. These range from simple puzzle games for younger learners to in-depth video interviews with leading scientists in the field today. Interactive styles range from tactile, hands-on exhibits to touch-screen video games.
