YouZeum In Final Stages

Visitors will be able to ride down the Hinkson Creek Trail, escape a swarm of angry bees, and test their reaction time on the basketball court all in one place. Joel Haus is one of the software developers. He's been working hard for more than a year to make the games as educational and realistic as possible.

"For the bike game I actually went out on the trail with a video camera strapped to my head, and we just video taped the trail so we could get an idea of what it would look like and what kind of things we wanted to put into the model," Haus explained.

The cycle challenge is one of the exhibits that's going to be put into the YouZeum. It simulates a ride on the Hinkson Creek Trail. While using it, visitors can see their heart rate, race against friends, and even take shortcuts. The YouZeum aims to use this and other similar games to improve personal, family, and community health through interactive education.

"I think through our exhibits, through our programs, and all the things that will be part of the YouZeum, you'll learn to make changes in your life that will improve your quality of life," YouZeum Executive Director Gwen Robbins said.

The YouZeum will hold a private reception Tuesday for donors to try out the exhibits for the first time.
