Museum of Science and Industry
More than just a body, you are a complex blend of your choices, your personality, and your environment. Who you are depends on how you care for yourself and enjoy your life. YOU! The Experience brings these elements together into an interactive exhibit examining and celebrating the experience of life itself.
Whether testing your basketball moves with a virtual coach or playing Mind Ball, a game of “competitive relaxation” in which players win by controlling their brainwaves, you will see yourself—and your health—in new and fascinating ways.
Examine real human embryos and fetuses illustrating the wonders of human development and other amazing human specimens showcasing the extraordinary complexity of the body. Diagnose and treat medical conditions with the Human Patient Simulator—a computer model-driven, full-sized mannequin. And use your own heartbeat to make the Museum’s new giant “Heart” come alive, transmitting your pulse to the Heart and making it beat in time with your own.
You’ll also be presented with activities to get you thinking about your goals, your future and your priorities. Create a list of personal life goals you can store and share with others. Hear thoughts on life from people who have lived 100 years of it, and have a chance to contribute some of your own life story. Preview your future with a digital glimpse at how you might look 25 years from now.
YOU! The Experience is filled with interactive opportunities that provoke questions, invite debate and inspire us all to optimize our personal health and well-being.
