GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes


Other exhibits

The Health Museum presents GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes - a diverse collection of historic, peculiar, and all-around amazing bikes as well as science stations that explore energy, forces and motion, engineering, and material science.


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.


All of Houston's food stories start with farmers。 In this photo-documentary, photographer Amy Scott takes viewers on a visual journey of what it takes to feed over 2。4 million people in Houston, the 4th largest city in the US。


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。
