Description

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's new Current Science Studio includes interactive media, holographic displays and a large sphere hanging from the ceiling that display space and Earth-based content from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The new 2,500-square-foot exhibit was enabled by a generous grant of $255,000 from Facebook. Current Science Studio is a virtual gallery that shows completely digital content on all displays. This allows the gallery to transform quickly from one topic to another in a matter of seconds.

Come see the Science On a Sphere®(SOS), a giant global display system suspended from the ceiling developed by NOAA. The large, interactive sphere is one of the first high-resolution versions of the system anywhere in the world. At the opening, guests were treated to exhibits on Space and Weather.

In addition to the Current Science Studio, the museum has reopened its other iconic exhibits, including the Children’s Museum, Noble Planetarium, DinoLabs, DinoDig, and the rotating history galleries. Located on the second floor, the Cattle Raisers Museum also reopened and currently features the brand-new exhibit Rural Women by artist Gary Ernest Smith.
