2018 Health & Wellness Week: Friday
Friday, Mar. 16, 2018 – Friday, Mar. 16, 2018
Don't miss Health & Wellness Week: Let it Move You, March 12-16, 2018. Explore the science of sound at The Health Museum during Spring Break. Music is a central part of the human experience, but what is the natural force that drives us to sing, strum, drum and dance? What is the scientific basis of whistling, humming and toe-tapping? From an acoustic bed to experiments on your emotional response to music, Science Gallery’s exhibition BIORHYTHM allows visitors to feel how music moves the body through an interactive bazaar of unique sonic experiences created by scientists, engineers and musicians from across the globe.
