Arctic Adventure: Exploring with Technology
As we continue into the 21st century, the Museum of Science is evolving to provide our visitors with the kinds of unforgettable experiences and engaging technologies that help inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone. Now, alongside our visionary exhibit partner Moment Factory, we are pushing the boundaries of experiential learning with our upcoming permanent exhibit, Arctic Adventure: Exploring with Technology (slated to open winter 2020).
As you enter from the Blue Wing, you’re not simply told about the Arctic—you’ll feel it. Arctic Adventure comes to life in front of you, with digitally immersive sights and sounds of the Arctic and a real touchable ice wall, all as the experience is fine-tuned to change everything from sunlight hues and animal behavior to match the hour and season. The experience will enable you to become a polar explorer who can trek across virtual ice fields with ground-penetrating radar and search for wildlife with interactive tools.
The exhibit’s engaging experiences invite visitors to be active participants. With more opportunities for involvement, you are able to connect with the environment and technology in a truly meaningful way.
