Bare Bones Day June 22
It’s all about bones! Can you tell what an animal eats by looking at its skull? How do animal skeletons compare to our own?
Join us for this fun-filled day devoted to exploring bones smaller than your little fingernail, larger than your leg and all other kinds, shapes and sizes. Explore Riverside's interactive family health display and get your bones checked by & Spine Center's bone density machine. Kids can check out the Backpack Weighing Station by Tidewater Physical Therapy.
Healthy Living Day Aug. 3

Exploring your Common Senses Aug. 24
Taste, touch, sight, smell, hearing – we all use them, but how do our senses compare to our furry, feathery and finny friends? Discover how good your sense of smell is compared to a fox. Test your eyesight to learn if it is as accurate as a hawk’s. Use your sense of touch to feel vibrations in water and determine if you could survive as a fish. There’s a lot to learn about your senses, come and explore yours with us on this fun filled hands-on day! Explore Riverside's interactive family health display.
