Salt is tasty and we need it in our diet, but too much salt can be bad for our health. Take some measurements to find out how much salt is in your favorite foods, and calculate how much you should have in a day. Then visit our Salt Bar to taste different salts from around the world.

Try out your skills as a Mad Scientist in The Lab!
Make foggy bubbles with dry ice, and stir up a gooey, glow-in-the-dark concoction to take home. Study spooky slides of snakeskin and spider fangs under the microscope!
About The Lab
Grab a pair of safety goggles and dive into a hands-on experiment at The Lab. In this exhibit, you’ll take on the role of a scientist and ask questions, make observations, and most important, get your hands dirty! Find out which sodas are the most acidic, what a scab looks like under a microscope, and what you can do to fight the flu.
While you’re here, engage with our team of EXPERT VOLUNTEERS and find out what it’s like to have a career in science.
Labs change weekly during the school year, and daily during the summer, so check out our CALENDAR PAGE to see our extended schedule.
We are so pleased to acknowledge the generous support received from the Biogen Idec Foundation in support of the Investigate Health Lab.
