The Studio showcases the latest in health-related research occurring in the Pacific Northwest. The featured theme and content in The Studio change every six months, giving you an opportunity to learn about new advances in health research and the methods, challenges and opportunities associated with scientific innovation.
In The Studio, you can hear visiting scientists discuss their research efforts in the health sciences and learn about the cutting-edge science that is advancing understanding about health and wellness. You also have the opportunity to explore health-related careers.
Minds and Machines
Spurred by new understanding of how the brain works, local science labs are learning how to use brain signals to compensate for injury or lost function. In Minds and Machines, you'll meet several of these scientists and learn what's at the cutting edge of neuroscience research. Visit The Studio within Wellbody Academy to use your brain waves to compete against another player in Mindball, check out neuroscience-related jobs on the Career Machine and see a real human brain.
The Studio features daily hands-on activities led by Pacific Science Center staff on select topics in the health sciences. On the first Saturday of most months, you can talk with local scientists at Scientist Spotlight. These programs are included in the price of general admission--FREE for Pacific Science Center members.
Within the Wellbody Academy, the Studio will continue to explore new topics every six months. Up next: tracking and preventing infectious diseases, opening in December 2013. Stay tuned for the latest information about the ever-changing Studio.
We work with local scientists to create exciting exhibit and programs that focus on current health science research. If you are a scientist or researcher in the Seattle area looking to get involved, we invite you to learn more about this excellent program.
