Animal Connections exhibit visits Purdue University

A traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition marking the 150th anniversary of the American Veterinary medical Association made a stop at Purdue University last week. 

The display, entitled "Animal Connections: Our Journey Together," is housed on an 18-wheel truck that introduces visitors of all ages to the complex bond between humans and animals. 

Created to inspire the next generation of veterinarians, the exhibit uses a dynamic combination of interactive learning stations, films and touch screen videos, and three-dimensional settings to explore topics about animals in the one, on the farm, in the wild, at the zoo and in the veterinary clinic. 

Animal Connections is made possible by support from the American Veterinary Medical Foundation and founding sponsor, Zoetis. For more information, visit www.sites.si.edu/index.htm
