Hands-On Demo: Counting Cells

The human body is made of over 37 trillion cells! Most of these need to be replaced every couple of months, weeks, or sometimes in the course of only a few days. Our cells grow and divide constantly to get this massive job done. But how do cells replicate themselves? How do things move in, out, and around the cell, and into new cells? How do cells know when to divide and when to stop? Join us for a hands-on demonstration where we will learn all about this massive process our bodies constantly carry out. Through inquiry and experimentation we will learn about cell division and even observe its various steps in action!

Hands-on demonstrations are 20-30 minute, interactive programs on the 2nd floor of the Museum.​ ​They include both brief presentations highlighting University research and engaging hands-on activities, and are suitable for adults and children ages 5 and up.

Made possible with support from the National Science Foundation.

No demonstrations on December 2, 23, 24, or 30. Museum closed on December 31st.
