These exhibits convey the basic science of, and latest information on, the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle, presented in a fun, high-tech, interactive format! LifeWorks is sure to be a hit for the entire family.

NEW! Stayin’ Alive FedEx Ground CPR Training Kiosk – Learn the basics of Hands-Only CPR chest compressions at this special kiosk developed by the American Heart Association. Five minutes of learning could save a life!

Sports Injuries Operation Game – Using an oversized OPERATION game – fun for kids and nostalgic for Boomers – remove and repair body parts linked to the ten most common sports injuries.

Joints Table – Discover how the mechanics of physical motion work by experimenting with different joints found in the human body, and compare them to artificial joints on display.

Healthy Heart – Compare your real-time heart rate with a selected animal's. How do you think your ticker will match up?

Keep the Beat – Keep the beat on a drum pad to the heartbeats of selected animals that are dramatically faster or slower than a human's.

Breathe Easy – Exhale a lung-full of air into a sensor, check out your lung capacity, then compare the results.
