At the BodyStage, take a journey through the human body – stopping by the intestines, taste buds, and brain – in a fun science lab atmosphere. Live demonstrations explore nutrition, healthy lifestyle choices, physical fitness, anatomy, and medical technology. Touch a 5-pound block of 'fat,' see MRI images, and taste healthy edible science. All shows are geared to the Next Generation Science Standards, enjoyable for all ages, and delivered in 30 minutes or less!
Savor the flavor of science. Gear-up your taste buds as we experience how we taste the world around us. Understand taste perception and how different things can alter taste.
Solve the mystery of what happens to food as it journeys through the human body through the alimentary canal (gastrointestinal tract). Students will understand how food is converted into energy and used by all parts of the body's systems.
Explore the options doctors have in examining the body and how they can use the latest technologies to help diagnose a patient's condition. During the show, students will see examples of scanners and scopes in action, before taking a look at the skills of surgery through a frog dissection.
Enjoy edible solutions as we flame various fruits and explore the chemistry of fire. Learn the three components of fire and the nature of its chemical reaction, then delve into mixture vs. solution chemistry. The fiery finish has some lip-smacking results!
Explore the chemistry of ice cream as our science chefs make tasty custard and cool it down with liquid nitrogen.
Join us in an adventure full of colorful fruits and vegetables as we explore how families can make healthy food options a part of their daily routine. Early learners will participate in cleaning, classification by color, and identifying edible parts of vegetables and fruits.
What are whole grains and why are they great? Plant the seeds of nutritional knowledge as we explore the ancient grain quinoa. Learn about gluten and how you can make a tasty gluten-free pudding snack.
Learn the history of cheese from the cow to our table. Cheese is a wonderful teaching tool for children, combing chemical reaction and practical results! At the end, students sample our stretched mozzarella cheese. It's whey cool!
