My Bodyworks allows participants to learn about the interesting facts of the human body from the different body systems to the five senses and internal organs. It uses the latest computing and digital imaging technologies to visualize the anatomical features that most people do not see in real life.
One of them is the 12-foothigh, 6-footwide model of the human heart. The exhibit illustrates the inner workings of the organ, including how blood flows through the arteries and veins as well as how cardiac muscle functions. Two to three times every hour, the model will start flashing lights and playing siren sounds to demonstrate what happen when a heart attack occurs.
For aspiring doctors and surgeons, there is a virtual surgery center onsite where they canper form stimulated surgical procedures. With atap of their fingers, participants can seal blood vessels and even conduct a virtual heart bypass surgery. Their hand-eye coordination will also be put to the test as they attempt to conduct scopes inside the body.
Wharf of Wonder
As a family friendly destination, the Exploreum caters to kids of all ages, including preschoolers. The Wharf of Wonder is a secure learning area designed for children ages 0 to 5 years old. The exhibit area features a mini wharf, and children are able to climb on a sea vessel used for shrimp fishing, visit a lighthouse, and weigh fish at a fish market.
The space has been specially created to encourage children to explore, collaborate, and develop their fine motor skills. As such, exhibits are specially made to be toddler safe with smaller steps, smoother surfaces for crawling, and quiet areas for resting. These measures ensure that parents and caretakers can have peace of mind while watching their young ones enjoy themselves.
