February Dissections

In honor of American Heart Awareness Month all of our dissections in February will be sheep hearts!

What does a broken heart really look like? In honor of American Heart Awareness Month, join us and our favorite educator Nurse T and her sidekick, Morty B-Bones, for a live sheep heart dissection and a fun-filled family game of trivia bursting with a wide range of entertaining questions for all ages. Get your heart racing with this live experience in the McGovern Theater! We’ll be waiting, organ in hand.

Organ Dissections are every Thursday in February at 3:00 pm. Cost: $5.00

Breathe in. Breathe out. Air pollutants are substances in the air that can have a negative effect on our health. Your Body, Your Air explores four common types of air pollutants and their sources in the Houston area, as well as the effect these pollutants have on our bodies and our communities.

Together we can work towards healthier air, healthier bodies, and healthier communities.


Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology, and even our viruses. Join us in learning how people fight epidemics - even before they start! You’ll explore the connections between human, animal, and environmental health, dive into case studies and personal experiences from epidemic-fighters from around the globe, discover how outbreaks have affected the Greater Houston Area, and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak.


You don’t need to be a scientist to enter, but you’ll feel like one when you leave! Gear up with a lab coat, gloves, and goggles and travel through experiment stations designed to bilingually introduce biology-based science to the public and inspire future scientists and leaders in the medical field.
Masks will continue to be required in the DeBakey Cell Lab.
