Champion Trees by Linda Palmer & Turned Wood by Gene Sparling
February - May 2023
It has long been thought science and art are disparate fields, requiring different skills, occupying opposite sides of the brain. However, recent studies have found that the two are more related than anyone ever thought, and that children can learn math and science concepts through artistic expression. Tree/Cycle demonstrates the importance of fostering creativity in our children, so they are better equipped to become successful adults grounded in their own abilities and talents.
RISE OF THE MAMMALS
This exhibit celebrates and explores the fascinating world of Dinosaurs at their prime and the catastrophic event that may have caused their extinction, while giving rise to our own species. Think of it as a cross between the excitement of Jurassic Park and the adventure of Indiana Jones.
LIFE IN ONE CUBIC FOOT
What is biodiversity? It’s the incredible variety of life on Earth.
