The Sciencenter will establish an interactive exhibition within the new Young Scientist Gallery to inspire excitement for STEM and empower children, ages five to eleven, who are interested in using environmental science to shape the future. Changing Skies will connect children with environmental science through a series of hands-on activities. The exhibition will encourage visitors to consider the broader impacts climate change has on our environment, society and economy. It encourages visitors to think about what they might do to address the negative effects of climate change. The exhibition will support the Sciencenter's focus on empowering youth to use science to shape a better future, by helping them improve their curiosity, confidence, collaboration, and critical thinking skills.
