ToxMystery Kiosk

Project/Program Dates: 2008 - 2009

In 2009 a free-standing ToxMystery Kiosk was installed at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The kiosk is located between the hands-on Exploration Station for kids and the Building Green exhibit. The kiosk has an adapted version of ToxMystery with all links to the Internet removed so that kids playing with the kiosk cannot leave the ToxMystery computer space. Plans for building a similar kiosk are available from tehip@teh.nlm.nih.gov
