Memorial Medical Center Donates $100,000 For Interactive Kidzeum Exhibit


A $100,000 gift from Memorial Medical Center will help pay for a three-story high exhibit depicting the inner workings of a human child’s body… which will serve as the centerpiece of the planned Kidzeum in downtown Springfield. 

 

Officials with the children’s museum say the 40-foot exhibit will have around 100 different components… including an interactive heart, a diabetes zone, and an “esophageal” slide down into a digestive tract.  The goal is to teach kids about healthy eating and prevention of obesity. 

 

Kidzeum officials say the donation from Memorial is a good way to kick off a final $2 million push to complete the capital campaign toward final construction and completion of the facility.
