Maybe health consciousness has finally gone too far. "Powerful You!" is a new interactive exhibit presented by Broward Health that opens Friday at the Museum of Discovery and Science (401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale). Its aimed at teaching families about the complex biological machine that is the human body, including its eventual breakdown and decay. Maybe youd like your little ones to experience the highs and lows of drunk driving by taking a turn in the Powerful Team DUI simulator. The munchkins will never ask for French fries again after experiencing Powerful Pulse, in which theyll learn all about heart disease and how to treat and prevent it. Special events on the opening weekend will include the da Vinci Surgical Robot and the Mammovan, which will be parked in the bus loop and will show visitors how easy it is to get a mammogram. Note: The Mammovan will be available on Saturday only. Anyone offering free mammograms in a van any other day is not to be trusted. Opening-weekend events begin at noon Saturday and Sunday. The permanent exhibit can be seen during regular museum hours, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Museum admission is $16 for adults, $15 for seniors, $12 for children 2 to 12.
