The field of research that long has intrigued humankind now is becoming a reality.
The interactive, permanent "Starfish" exhibit is the product of a partnership involving the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Initiative, ASSET Inc., the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh Learning Research and Development Center.
Ann Metzger, science center co director, said exhibits such as "Starfish" help "develop the future work force and ensure we have a scientifically literate society."
Exhibits include a cell puzzle and a cell matrix station, a stem cell Q kiosk, an area where visitors can learn about professionals in the field, and a kiosk where they can register opinions about the ethics of tissue engineering.
In conjunction with the exhibit, ASSET Inc., based on the South Side, has developed a two day course to help middle school teachers connect the exhibit and the topics with science curriculum.
John Pollock, a Duquesne University biologist and science filmmaker, produced the video game that attracted so much attention from children. As with other exhibit attractions, the game captures the interest of students but provides scientific background and details in clear language to promote education.
The exhibit "If a Starfish Can Grow a New Arm, Why Can't I?" took seven years of planning with local researchers, considered to be world experts, joining with educators and science center officials.
"There are 1,000 unfilled positions in research and technology in the region at any time, and exhibits like this one will hopefully inspire the children that visit the science center to explore these science and medical careers and create the next generation of researchers for this region."
The Carnegie Science Center on the North Shore unveiled a new multimedia exhibit yesterday that strives to engage children and adults in the advanced topics Prada Handbags Multicolor that Pittsburgh researchers have been tackling Burberry Wallet And Bags
advances in transplantation and regenerative science is the ideal location for the one of a kind exhibit.
They all wanted a chance to earn points by encircling the stem cells, while avoiding other cells that would cost them points.
New exhibit hopes to intrigue next generation of researchers
Entranced by the video game, a young boy worked at the touchscreen to draw circles around, of all things, stem cells. Other children soon had gathered to watch, then participate, then attempt to take their turn at the game.
Seamore, an animated Elvis look alike starfish, guides visitors through the complex science to show how some animals can regrow lost limbs and body parts, then traces the process to higher species and humans who have largely, albeit not entirely, lost this regenerative ability.
The exhibit leads visitors of all ages through basic cell biology to promote understanding of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, while also explaining current applications of the science and what the future holds. The exhibit also addresses ethical issues involved in the Burberry Bags Wholesale
for decades with amazing results, including regrown human fingers and successful hand transplants.
The science center will showcase replicas of the exhibit at four and potentially five other science centers across the nation.
