"What's your healthy power?" is a question Healthy Learning Paths asks kids and parents. You may be surprised by the answers from kale to kindness.  We invite you to join our mission to spread the power of health for children.  We offer labs where children practice health skills while learning about the brain, heart, and emotions.  Our programs are science-based with fun activities that help children make connections between healthy choices and healthy bodies, minds, and emotions.  Children support one another on their shared journey in health.  Children gain confidence from our programs as they discover they have the power to make healthy choices.  Learn more healthy powers at healthylearningpaths.org.


During the Expo, explore inside Mega Brain to discover how your brain works with Centura Health.  If that isn't enought to blow your mind, travel through space with Fiske Inflatable Planetarium!  After you try out some Mad Science, you'll be ready for calm with yoga at this one of of kind Expo that guarantees an awesome experience for all!  Witness innovations in science, health, and tech with amazing activities that ignite imaginations of the young and young at heart!  Visit 80 exhibits at this premier Expo:  Where Science, Engineering, & Health Collide from 8 am until 12 noon inside the 1STBANK Center.  The 1STBANK Center staff will have a FREE small electronics recyle drive during the expo.  Electronics accepted include:  batteries, cell phones, desktop computers, DVD players, keyboards, laptops, light bulbs, mice, monitors, network equipment, small printers, and stereo equipment.  Bring your electronics to help keep the earth clean!
