Washington Pavilion announces 'Health Quest' by Sanford

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The Washington Pavilion is partnering with Sanford Health to bring a new health and wellness exhibit to the Kirby Science Center.

Health Quest will feature interactive exhibits focusing on anatomy, emergency care and medical occupations.

The goal of the exhibit is to encourage a healthy lifestyle through hands-on learning.

"It's going to teach our kids a little bit more about their bodies -- making healthy choices, body systems, genetics and what that means -- and do it in a way that's fun where they don't really understand or recognize that they are learning," Sanford Health public affairs director Stacy Wrightsman said.

Renovations and construction will start later this month, and the exhibit is expected to open in May.
