February’s Science After Dark is All About the Heart

Valentine’s Day may be behind us, but February is still American Heart Month, and in case you missed the memo, your heart is kind of a big deal. That’s why this month’s Science After Dark with the Museum of Discovery is focused on just that: The Science of the Heart.

This adulst-only, hands-on program will teach you what you need to know about that weird shaped organ in your chest and some fun stuff along the way. Whole Foods Market specialists will help you learn about how your diet affects your heart, while you learn about heart disease from the American Heart Association and CPR from The Red Cross. Flash back to your middle school days and watch a heart dissection, then jump back to adulthood as Kilwins teaches you about the benefits of chocolate and wine. 

But man cannot live on wine and chocolate alone. Luckily, you’ll be able to purchase drinks a la Juanita’s and Stone’s Throw, as well as slices of Damgoode Pies pizza. 

Science After Dark starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26. Admission is $5 at the door and members get in free. For more information, follow Science After Dark on Facebook.
