The Amazing Aging Machine

You're not getting any younger.

By age 20, your neurons start dying. By 30, your ears start to droop. By 50, half your body hair turns gray. But it's not all gray hairs and gravity - find out why we age and what happens when we do!


The Machine

Ontario Science Centre visitors get to grow old in a matter of minutes. No, not because we have long line ups... at our Amazing Aging Machine! Located in the Human Body hall, the machine uses state-of-the-art aging software developed in partnership with Aprilage Inc. of Toronto to add decades to the faces of 8-12 year olds.


But I don't want to look that way!

The Amazing Aging Machine doesn't guarantee that's how you'll age. How you'll look and feel when you're older is mostly up to you. Lots of aspects of aging are predictable—you're certain to get some gray hair—but smoking, sitting out in the sun for long periods, not exercising and eating poorly will speed up the aging process and make your skin look worse in old age.

So slap on some sunscreen and eat your broccoli!
