You and your microbes are invited to the public opening of Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome on Saturday, September 10 from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Trillions of microbes make their homes inside our bodies, and we wouldn’t be able to survive without each other! Zoo in You, invites guests of all ages to explore this fascinating and complex world inside us that is our microbiome—a dynamic, adaptable, and delicately balanced ecosystem much like any other found in nature.
Explore this vibrant world of our inner microorganisms through engaging, interactive, and bilingual exhibits and programs and discover who our constant microbial companions are, where they live, how diverse they are, and in what ways scientists are discovering just how important they are to our personal health.
Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award
(SEPA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
