Eat Well, Play Well / Come Bien, Juega Bien
January 22 — June 2014
What is in the food we eat? Are fruits and vegetables important? Can everyday activities burn calories? Families, children and school groups will find the answers to these questions by exploring the worlds of nutrition and fitness in Eat Well, Play Well, a new, bilingual (English/Spanish) hands-on science exhibit which examines healthy living strategies by teaching the science of making healthy food choices and helping children and adults discover that there are many fun and interesting ways to stay active. Children and families engage with nine highly interactive areas which encourage the discovery that healthy choices are within their reach!
- scan food items to get feedback on food choices
- match foods to everyday options to learn a correct serving size
- test your balance
- use the classic sit-and-reach test to test your flexibility
- PLUS MORE!
Eat Well, Play Well / Come Bien, Juega Bien is on display now through June 2014.
EAT WELL, PLAY WELL was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
