FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Science Central held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sunday for a new traveling exhibit that has set up shop at the local museum.
“Bones Carnival” will be on display through Jan. 8, 2017.
The interactive exhibit allows visitors to explore their bones and learn about the human skeleton. It promotes the importance of developing lifelong habits to keep bones healthy.
“We want them [kids] to learn and understand basic science,” said Martin Fisher, Executive Director of Science Central. “What is the human skeleton? What is a bone? What are the minerals and materials that make it up? But we always want them to to understand that healthy, nutrition, diet, is also very important to have a healthy skeleton and to have a healthy life style.”
The exhibit was made possible in-part by Parkview Ortho Hospital. Officials from the hospital, Science Central, and Fort Wayne City Council Russ Jehl (R-2nd) were on hand for the ceremony.
