The Imaginarium (Children’s Science Museum) at the Grout Museum in Waterloo, IA is teaching bone health this summer. Good choices for bone health during growing years are the best way to avoid future problems and osteoporosis.
“The Bone Zone” is a special exhibit from Purdue University Department of Nutrition now through 5 September. Interactive exhibits teach interesting facts about bone, and guide participants to healthy choices for bone health. The target audience is K-8, but adults learn a few things too.
You can learn about Calcium content of foods. Fortuneteller “Madame Ulna” will tell your bone future based on activity choices. You can compare the strength of a human femur to equally strong wood, concrete and steel.
Cedar Valley Bone Health, Cedar Valley Orthopedics, and Cedar Valley Medical Specialists, PC sponsored the exhibit. As sponsors we brought our kids and grandkids to a special opening. “The Bone Zone” is really cool.
Take your kids and grandkids to the Grout Imaginarium this summer. They’ll have a great time, and great bones.
