“Earth Matters,” a sustainability exhibit, opens at the Orlando Science Center on January 22.
Interactive exhibits delve into biodiversity, rising global temperatures and carbon emissions and are designed to inspire visitors to consider new answers to big questions. It also focuses on local actions, such as planting a tree.
A 3D projection map of a coral reef shows changes in its ecosystem in response to daily human actions. In another display, attendees see the amount of water used to make a candy bar.
The target audience of “Earth Matters”, created by the Australian company Scitech, is between 5 and 16 years old.
Members of the Orlando Science Center will preview the exhibit on January 22 from 10 a.m. to noon, when it opens to the public. “Earth Matters” is included in regular admission to the science center. It remains at the Loch Haven Park Museum until April 30.
The sustainability exhibit opens the day after the science center’s Tap Beer Festival.
