Exhibition Name:

Expedition Earth

Description:

Expedition Earth greets visitors with the sights and sounds of the world's biomes, including tundra, grasslands, deserts, forests, and aquatic. Visitors take on the role of field scientist in this very interactive exhibit. Dozens of hands-on activities engage visitors of all ages as they learn about habitats, systems, species diversity, adaptation, and more. The five research tents allow visitors to use scientists' tools and equipment, learning how they record and utilize their data. Huge photos and videos from around the world draw the visitors into each scene where they are joined by colorful characters from the Adventures of Riley book series. Exploring the world by peeking, poking, prodding, and building, Expedition Earth is great learning fun for all!
