EXPLORE HOW THINGS MOVE FROM HERE TO THERE
Explore the science of how things move by land, sea and air at The Don Harrington Discovery Center’s new traveling exhibition, From Here to There, opening on Friday January 15, 2021. Lift, launch and levitate as you experiment with hands-on exhibits that make learning about gravity, friction, and the laws of motion fun. Ride a hovercraft to experience how air pressure works, adjust wind speed to form fabric into an airfoil, and float your sailboat to experiment with the effect of wind, rudder and sail positions. Visitors can turn up the heat to launch a colorful hot air balloon, operate an authentic canal lock system to move a boat from one water level to the next, and experiment with pneumatics, pulleys, hydraulics and levers to see what kind of mechanical advantage works best. From Here to There consists of eleven fun, interactive exhibits. “We are thrilled to bring this fun and exciting exhibit to Amarillo, to help our visitors learn about the science of movement and how transportation works. Each element of the exhibit is designed to spark conversation and encourage interaction between families, in a fun and engaging way.” said Wendy Taylor, DHDC’s Executive Director. The 1,500 square foot exhibition is color-coded and divided into three main categories: transportation by land, sea and air.
This exhibition will open to the public and DHDC members on Friday January 15th from 9:30am-4:30pm.
DHDC Members may also enjoy a members-only exhibit exploration time from 4:30pm-6:00pm on Friday.
