Gases of Life

The Gases of Life exhibit makes the invisible visible! Four stations display different gases that are necessary for survival. Watch plants exhale oxygen as little bubbles floating to the surface of the water due to photosynthesis. By using the pump inflate our real pig lung. The lungs and respiratory system allow oxygen in the air to be taken into the body, while also enabling the body to get rid of carbon dioxide. How does the carbon dioxide level outdoors compare to indoors? Discover for yourself by reading it on a different sensor in the lab! The last station takes you on a gases journey as you climb onto a bike and pedal. What happens to the level of carbon dioxide in your breath? Check by breathing into a tube that will digitally measure it before and after exercising!
