SEE awarded Sun, Earth, Universe Exhibition

The Sun, Earth, Universe exhibition is part of a nationwide effort to engage audiences in the awe-inspiring fields of Earth and space science.  SEE Science Center is one of 52 science centers nation-wide awarded this exhibition.  The exhibition will be on permanent display at SEE beginning August 9, 2019

The  exhibition was created in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  Developed by a team led by the Science Museum of Minnesota, it is distributed nationwide by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network).

Sun, Earth, Universe includes fun and compelling exhibits for visitors of all ages.  Packed with engaging, interactive exhibits and dazzling imagery, this 600-square-foot exhibition will connect visitors with current NASA science research and launches them on a journey to explore the universe! This exhibition will help to answer questions like–how is Earth changing? What is it like on other planets? Does life exist beyond Earth? What’s happening on the Sun, and how does it affect us? Sun, Earth, Universe is a new exhibition about our planet, the solar system, and the universe, and the big questions NASA is trying to answer about each.

The exhibition is filled with fun, hands-on components highlighting the ongoing NASA research.  It encourages visitors to imagine what the future of Earth and space science might hold.

On August 13 SEE celebrated the official opening of this exhibition with an event with DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester.  Freash baked DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies and decorate your own Moon and Star sugar cookies  were provided courtesy of DoubleTree.

Hilton will be the first hospitality company to participate in research aboard the International Space Station (ISS).   In the fall of 2019  DoubleTree by Hilton will make aerospace history when a batch of DoubleTree Cookie dough is launched in a rocket bound for the International Space Station (ISS) as part of a landmark microgravity experiment. Hilton will be working in partnership with Zero G Kitchen, which creates appliances for microgravity use in long-duration space flights, and NanoRacks, a leading provider of commercial access to space.  More about Cookies in Space
