Event Description

The May 25 opening will run from 4 to 6 p.m.

Climate perspectives headerOn Wednesday, May 25 beginning at 4 p.m. and running through 6 p.m. you’ll have  an opportunity to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit at the Bradbury Science Museum. Titled Climate Perspectives: Change in the Terrestrial Arctic (Science-Art-Poetry), the hands-on, user-driven interface is chock full of information on Arctic research done by the Lab and will be accompanied by artistic exploration (images, poems, etc.) of some of the same issues. For instance, you can look at scientific data about permafrost and also read a poem about the same subject.

The topic of climate change can be daunting due to it’s complexity, but this innovative interface will allow visitors to explore the topics that interest them in the order they choose.

The extensive number of items contained within the database means an almost completely personalized journey as users decide what they what they want to interact with next.

The opening will also include some of those who helped bring the exhibit together to answer questions and explain the process that led to the current concept. While the contemporary content represents a first phase of the work, it is expected to expand over time. Two traveling versions are also in the works.   

The opening is free and the public are encouraged is attend. Light refreshments will be served.

Arctic climate change will also be the topic of this month's Science on Tap on May 19. More information on that event is here.

There is currently no end date for the exhibit.
