Zoo in You Traveling Exhibition
Thanks to a generous grant from the National Institutes of Health’s Science Education Partnership Award (NIH-SEPA), the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in partnership with the JCVI, created a 2,000 square foot bilingual (English and Spanish) traveling exhibition that engages visitors in the cutting edge research of the NIH Human Microbiome Project and explores the impact of the microbiome on human health.
The Zoo in You: the Human Microbiome is currently on display at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in San Diego through May 8, 2016. The exhibit features 15 interactive components, which are organized by three topic areas: "Meet the Microbes," "Balanced Ecosystems," and "Exploring the Microbiome." The exhibit is also scheduled to visit Houston, Texas, Boca Raton, Florida, and Springfield, Massachusetts through early 2017.
