Science Forum Demo: Counting Cells

Saturday, October 12, 2019
11:00-11:20 AM
Museum of Natural History Biological Sciences Building Map
Join us in the Science Forum for 15-20 minute engaging science demonstrations that will help you see the world around you in a whole new way. Demonstrations are appropriate for visitors ages 5 and above.

The human body is made of more than 37 trillion cells. Most of them need to be replaced every couple of months, weeks, or sometimes in the course of only a few days. Our cells grow and divide constantly to get this massive job done. But how do cells replicate themselves? How do things move in, out, and around the cell, and into new cells? Join us as we explore how our bodies carry out this massive process. We will learn about cell structure and division and observe cells up-close and in action!
