S&T’s biological sciences department will host a public exhibit, “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World,” from Friday, March 1, until Sunday, March 17, in The Centre recreational complex, located at 1200 Holloway St. in Rolla.

The public is invited to The Centre for an opening reception for the exhibit 5-6:30 p.m. Monday, March 4, and a Children’s Science Day 2-4 p.m. Saturday, March 16.

The Outbreak exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 1918 influenza epidemic, with a smaller version of a 4,250-square foot exhibition developed by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Society of for Microbiology.

The Smithsonian made the smaller exhibits available to U.S. communities to communicate how infectious viruses can affect human, animal and environmental health and what can be done to keep them from spreading.
