Challenge your brain, stop a virus, dance or just chill out–it’s all part of your MeLaβ experience.
Every day we all make choices that affect our health and wellness. In real life, each choice counts, but in MeLaβ, located in the Baptist Health South Florida Gallery, you become the experiment, as you run simulations, solve puzzles and test your senses, reflexes and stress responses to find out what works best for you.
As you travel through MeLaβ, you hit five interactive zones (eat, move, relax, connect and learn), each offering experiments revealing how your body and mind function. Grab a virtual plate and fill it with your favorite foods to find out how much pizza or salad is ideal for a busy day; jump on the interactive dance floor to discover how many steps it takes to burn off that pizza or salad; take timed brain teaser challenges to see how you respond under pressure, or sink into a relax pod to learn which music helps you chill.
Your partner in MeLaβ is βeta, a digital character you build as you answer questions in each zone. The more questions you answer, the more you can customize your βeta, and the more you learn about yourself. You can pool your data with everyone else’s and see the results in real time on a giant screen, comparing the crowd’s choices with your own. On your way out, get motivated and inspire others by posting your number one health goal to MeLaβ’s exit wall, sharing what you plan to do tomorrow to build a better you.
