About this event

Learn how your heart works and why it sometimes beats slow and other times feels like it is going to burst out of your chest! Did you know it can still beat outside your body?

Through a hands-on interactive session, we'll learn all about hearts and answer questions such as: How does the heart work? What makes the heart beat? Is a mouse heart the same as a whale heart? Can we measure what happens when you exercise?
