Coming Soon - Wellness Way!

We are so excited to share with you a preview of our new exhibit - Wellness Way! Sponsored by Wilmington Health, this exhibit has three main focuses- infant care, anatomy, and wellness. Through role playing with dolls, not only will children learn the basics of infant care, they will improve their social, language, and motor skills as well as learn empathy and responsibility. This exhibit aims to educate children about anatomy and how systems in our body help keep us healthy. Children will also learn how antibodies and white blood cells work together to fight off any germs that may have entered their body with the interactive maze.
