The Studio

Wellbody Studio

The Studio showcases the latest in health-related research occurring in the Pacific Northwest. The featured theme and content in The Studio changes 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.

Current Exhibit
Have you ever wondered where diseases came from, how they were found and tracked? Come join the hunt for West Nile virus in the newest Studio exhibit, Disease Detectives: West Nile Virus in Washington. Find out how new research at Washington State University and ongoing monitoring at the Washington State Department of Health are helping to keep you safe. Visit The Studio within Wellbody Academy to use your detective skills to find out which mosquitoes can transmit the virus, how the virus infects people and what you can do to protect yourself.

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.

Volunteer Opportunities
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.
