Rethink the Future with an Exhibition on Sustainability
Fort Collins Museum of Discovery has announced its special exhibition, Earth Matters: Rethink the Future, is now on display through Sunday, January 8, 2023. The exhibition combines interactive experiences for all ages.
Earth Matters immerses visitors in thought-provoking scientific topics about our changing planet such as biodiversity, rising global temperatures, and issues around carbon emissions. The 5,000-square-foot exhibition inspires visitors to rethink the future and understand how even the smallest of actions, like building an insect hotel, make a big difference in the world. This STEM-based, family-friendly exhibit is presented in English and Spanish.
“Earth Matters brings to life important conversations about changes in our natural world. Visitors of all ages are inspired to be curious and take part in unique problem-solving roles as we collectively work to build safe, healthy, and sustainable communities,” said Laura Valdez, Fort Collins Museum of Discovery’s Nonprofit Partner Co-Executive Director.
In addition to featuring Earth Matters, special programming is planned through the run of the exhibit to bring science-based topics to life. A regularly updated programmatic schedule and registration information can be found at www.fcmod.org/earth-matters-programming.
“Earth Matters comes to Colorado at a perfect time. We are hearing from all over the community that the exhibit and our programmatic experiences are fun and memorable,” said Cheryl Donaldson Moses, City Partner Co-Executive Director. “Our aligned programming is reinforcing community connections so vital to the museum’s impact in Colorado and beyond.”
Earth Matters is created by Scitech in Perth, Australia, and produced by Imagine Exhibitions. The exhibition is sponsored by Odell Brewing Co., HP Inc., and Kaiser Permanente.
