TOXMAP Featured at the USA Science & Engineering Festival
TOXMAP was featured at the USA Science & Engineering Festival on the Mall in Washington, DC October 24, 2010. The ScienceFest exposed children to the wonders of science by providing fun and interactive activities. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) created a carnival-like tent around the theme of toxicology and environmental health called "Toxic Adventures." Activities highlighted TOXMAP, ToxMystery, and Tox Town. During the 4 hour exhibit, children played an electronic matching game linking chemicals to their descriptions, dug for products containing various "pretend" toxins, and played ball toss with Toxie-the-Cat.
