Discovery Lab will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and its themes that continue to resonate today—the nature of life, our role as creators, and responsible innovation in our technological age.
Discovery Lab will bring these themes to life for even the youngest audiences during our Frankenstein200 event on Friday, January 19th, 2:00- 5:00 p.m. Guests are invited to come and go, participating in hands-on science activities that explore Frankenstein’s legacy in the 21st century. In addition to a number of activities in The WorkShop, we will offer three viewings of a live sheep’s brain dissection. All activities are included with the cost of admission, however guests must pre-register for the dissection. Spaces for the dissection are limited.
The dissection presentation will be led by Assistant Professor Dolores Vazquez Sanroman Ph.D from the OSU Center for Health Science Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.
