Medical Technology & The Human Body

May 16, 11am - 2 pm

Do you know how you breathe... and are you thinking about it right now? What does electricity have to do with the human body? Answer these questions and more with the Bell Museum, the University of Minnesota’s Medical Device Center, and the Bakken Museum!

Explore some Shocking News About Your Heart (a show by the Bakken Museum) after you’ve taken a trip through a 3D heart, brain, and body in the ExploraDome theater. Also, test your surgical skills on a life sized game of Operation and design your own medical device to solve a health problem.
