When groups come to the St. Joseph Mercy Health Exploration Station they will see:


State-of-the-art interactive classrooms where programs take place.

The Exhibit Gallery is designed like the inside of a giant human.

There is a ribcage that goes all the way to the ceiling.

Participants can walk under the ribcage.

In the ribcage there is a giant heart. If participants put their hands on the bar under the heart they can hear their own heartbeat.

A giant lung that explains the disease of asthma.

There is a big green face on the wall -- that is the beginning of the digestive system.

Participants can follow the red path on the carpet (esophagus) and pretend they are a piece of food being swallowed.

At the end of the path there is a giant stomach. Participants can crawl through the stomach and end up in the small intestine maze.

At the end of the small intestine maze there is a green tunnel (large intestine) to crawl through.
