NZ International Science Festival  hosts Slice of Life exhibition in Dunedin: June to July 20201

During the Science Festival, visitors can get a tiny taste of the Dunedin Study by trying for themselves some of the many tests Dunedin Study members experience when they come for an assessment day.

The exhibition follows the Dunedin Study’s members as they start school, learn to drive, experiment with sex, drugs and alcohol, find careers and start families of their own. Visitors can look into rooms recreated in the styles of the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s, and learn about links between lifestyle choices and health through hands-on interactive exhibits.

Slice of Life was originally developed by the University of Otago Te Whare Wānanga o Otāgo and Toitū Otago Settlers Museum. This updated travelling version of the exhibition has been to Canterbury Museum, MOTAT In Auckland and Nelson Provincial Museum with over 300,000 visitors taking a walk through 1,000 lives.
