Don't be a couch potato, get out and enjoy some of Knoxville's activities
East Tennessee Discovery Center
This is a place for children and adults to explore. You will find a large collection of insects from around the world, ten aquarium tanks filled with saltwater Caribbean species to freshwater African chiclids, and live anthropoids. Amphibians and reptiles as well as a live honey bee colony are among other interesting displays. There are also a number of physical science exhibits including one that shows how lightning is created. The Discovery Center is located in Chilhowee Park and is open to the general public, as well as groups and class field trips.
Who Lives? Who Dies? Who Decides?
"The God Committee" will be presented by The WordPlayers at The WordPlayers' Theatre.
In this timely, provocative drama by Mark St. Germain, medicine, money and morality clash when the Transplant Selection Committee of St. Patrick's Hospital has only minutes to decide which of three patients will receive a heart that has suddenly come available. "The God Committee" takes us into the inner workings of a Transplant Program and a decision which, for both the candidates and the program, is a matter of life and death. (Recommended for ages 15+)
