Chart your own course to explore the cosmos in our all-new fall exhibit Planet Pioneers. Explore, adapt and survive on a mission to colonize a new planet Oct. 6 – Jan. 20.
The interactive exhibit, created by Scitech of Western Perth, Australia and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, puts aspiring astronauts and space explorers to the test as they attempt to source their own food, shelter and solve problems in an unknown world.
Experience hands-on challenges to find water and oxygen, grow food in a foreign atmosphere and build shelter to survive the elements. Drive a 4-D Surface Exploration Vehicle, fly a virtual drone to solve environmental issues and experience the effects of g-force in a spinning capsule.
Face full-body challenges, pack the right equipment for the voyage, recruit crew members and learn about the surrounding planets in the solar system. Learn how resources can be conserved and what techniques may be used to grow fresh food to sustain astronauts and reduce payload.
