The World Around Us
This exhibit might change the way visitors see our planet--it brings natural and earth sciences to life with interactive experiences such as Go H2O! – the water cycle exhibit that looks and "plays" like a giant pinball machine. Exhibits feature real animal mounts amid multimedia experiences. Visitors can get a glimpse into the forest canopy through a periscope or choose a sit-in adventure that feels like rocketing into space. This permanent exhibit allows visitors to explore three themed galleries: "Aquasphere: Water that Sustains Us," "Terrasphere: Environments that Support Us" and "Atmosphere: Air that Surrounds Us." In the Discovery Gallery, a hands-on learning area for all ages, the Science Center's natural history collection has a dynamic new home.
