Holly's Heaves

The traveling exhibit will consist of four interlocking, interactive, and educational kiosks focused on the following topics: the clinical trials process; comparative neuroanatomy; nutrition and fitness; and, the respiratory system. Animals will serve as the tour guide for each kiosk. Holly, a 10-year-old horse with an asthma-like condition called heaves, is the tour guide for the fourth kiosk which is focused on the respiratory system.

The kiosk will consist of graphic art panels, computer interactives and other hands-on activities in which visitors learn about the anatomy of the respiratory system, how the respiratory system works and methods for treating and preventing asthma in horses, people, and cats.

The images below document the development of the fourth kiosk. Please click here to learn more about our traveling exhibit team.

We would like to thank Trudell Medical International for their donation of the inhalers used in this exhibit.

Development- The development process for Holly's Heaves included developing the layout for all of the kiosks and how they will interact. A script for Holly's Heaves was then prepared by the team and reviewed by experts in education and assessment.  Carol Bain, a gifted illustrator, then worked with the Exhibit Design Center team at Purdue University, and content experts to bring the script to life.
