Human Plus: Real Lives + Real Engineering
1515 Hermann Dr. Houston, TX 77004
Sunday, November 19, 2017, 5 – 6 p.m.

Human Plus: Real Lives + Real Engineering

The future is now for medical science, and no place is that more evident than at Houston’s world-renowned Texas Medical Center (TMC). On Saturday, September 30, 2017, The John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science – a TMC member institution – brought to Houston a fascinating look into the ingenuity and creativity behind developing groundbreaking engineering solutions that improve human lives every day, through the traveling exhibition: Human Plus: Real Lives + Real Engineering.

Through this exhibition guests will be able get their hands on a broad range of actual ability-enhancing tools. Exhibits include a simulated downhill mono-ski course; a DJ station built out of a wheel chair and controlled by the wheels; a touch panel that translates music into vibrations guests can feel; a hands-free computer mouse, controlled through slight movements of the head, that allows the guest to type messages, edit photos or watch videos; and a neuroprosthetic limb that can be controlled by a person’s thoughts! Guests can even re-design themselves in a full body simulation and test body enhancement technologies that supersize their strength, showcasing the new horizon of engineering that was once the stuff of science fiction.

On display at The Health Museum through January 1, 2018, this exhibition offers young and young-at-heart guests the chance to explore and create a range of low- and high-tech tools that extend the abilities of the human body. The exhibition will take place at The Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Dr. Houston TX, 77004 during regular museum hours. Access to the exhibit is included in the price of admission, $8 kids 3-12 and seniors 65+, $10 for adults. For more information on Human Plus visit thehealthmuseum.org/exhibit/human or call (713)521-1515.

Every year, we handpick the best new play by one of our students and produce the show for your enjoyment. We invite you to support our theatre stars of tomorrow!
When Joseph, a gambler who has hit rock bottom, finally wins the lottery, he panics and immediately tries to give it away. Elaine, the manager of Waffle House he frequents and his only real friend, doesn't want the money either and tries to convince Joseph to use it for himself. Meanwhile, the nearby casino is shut down, forcing disgruntled employees to deal with eccentric casino patrons in a dark comedy about success, failure, money, death and waffles.

Come make new friends and learn about all the fun you're about to have in Houston and world-wide hiking, biking, traveling, kayaking, socializing and whatever we can come up with that’s fun!

Are you new to BCO and curious to discover the ins, outs, and what all a social, outdoor activity group like us has to offer? Have you been stalking the calendar for months (or years) and haven't joined yet... maybe you just have a few more questions? Or, you're already a member but you might need some tips on navigating the website, or you're still a little nervous about attending an event or outing alone. Just want to come say hi? Do it! You'll meet folks in the same exact boat as you, and you'll learn a whole lot about all the fun Bayou City Outdoors has to offer.

Our calendar can be a little overwhelming with 80 to 100 events every month, so let us explain some of our favorites and tell you everything you need to know about being a BCO member. We'll fill you in on the perks, discounts, loaner gear, buddy program, website, RSVP system, tips and so much more.

We work hard to make this a little more “formal” (if we could ever be accused of that!) than our Meet & Greets. Time and size permitting, we will have a presentation, Q&A, and social time too. We may even have a few Event Leaders on hand to talk about their upcoming events!

Come make new friends and learn about all the fun you're about to have in Houston and world-wide hiking, biking, traveling, kayaking, socializing and whatever we can come up with that’s fun!

Parking – Parking in front of Beck’s, share a lot with the golf course
