Your Spitting Image web site launches
The Museum has launched a new educational web site that reveals what your mouth says about you. Your Spitting Image features an in-depth exploration of forensics, saliva, and bioengineering as it relates to science, dentistry, and oral health. Topics include DNA, genetics, the mouth/body connection and stem cells. It can be used alone in the classroom or in conjunction with a field trip to see the companion exhibit at the National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore or at one of the venues across the country hosting a traveling version of the exhibit. Teacher guides provide easy-to-understand, illustrated lessons for middle- and high-school students, and interactive online activities provide tools for further exploration of the exhibit. The web site also provides detailed information about the Your Spitting Image traveling exhibit and how it can be brought to communities nationwide. The web site was made possible by a generous grant from the Patterson Companies Foundation. Click here to explore Your Spitting Image online.
