"Truth Behind the Tooth"

In 2016, our March Break Program gave kids a chance to sink their teeth into the history of dentistry and oral hygiene. Participants learned about how early civilizations took care of their teeth, visited  a dentist from the 1920s for a check-up, and made toothpaste used by the early settlers in Canada. The program let kids learn how important it is to have healthy teeth and how they can keep their teeth healthy in the future. The program was offered to children 6-12 and guardians were welcome to attend.

"Pump it UP!"

In 2015, our March Break Program was action packed with learning as we got our hearts pumping and found out why our bodies in motion are so amazing! Museum docents taught students about their respiratory and circulatory systems, while local fitness experts led in fun activities. Participants were encouraged to make their own healthy and tasty snack using Canada's food guide and learned about how the digestive system works.

The museum was thrilled to be able to offer this program for free thanks to the generous support of the Weston Foundation - Healthy Active Kids. This program was offered to children ages 6 - 12.

"Brainium Explainium"

How big is your brain? Where do you store memories? What is “brain freeze”? In 2014, March Break Program participants ages 6+ learned all about the brain and nervous system through a series of hands-on activities. They racked their brains with a memory challenge, tested their reflexes, conducted cerebral experiments, and created their very own thinking caps!

Snot & Whatnot” 

On March 16, 17 & 18, 2011, kids (and adults!) were treated to a wild, gross-out ride through medical history at the Museum of Health Care! Participants pulled on lab coats, mixed up pots of snot, and enjoyed our hair-raising, hands-on activities. From bloodletting to black bile, participants learned oodles of icky facts!
