Eyes open. Nothing is familiar. No one is around. You are miles from civilization and must now use your instincts and skills to survive, but don't worry, you have the planet's two most powerful tools at your disposal: your mind and your instinct for survival. Survival: The Exhibition places visitors in a simulated wilderness environment and combines STEM learning with gaming techniques in a hands-on, immersive exhibition that challenges visitors and teaches them the scientific principles behind 10 key survival techniques.
Visitors learn basic survival skills essential in not only extreme situations but also lessons derived from concepts used in daily civilization
- Material Science: building a shelter and making rope
- The Laws of Thermodynamics: required to start a proper fire

-Caring for injured
-Finding or Creating clean drinking water
