Look Kids! Mammograms!
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. Call 954-467-6637, or visit
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.; Sundays, noon, 2010
