SEASONS
OF CHANGE

We love our weather don’t we? We talk about it, fret over it, take pictures of it and we even try to predict it! From January 21st through March 25 ECHO presents Seasons of Change : Global Warming in Your Backyard, a traveling exhibit that takes a look at climate change in the Northeast. 

Seasons of Change - Exploring Climate Change

Seasons of Change is an interactive traveling exhibit that illustrates how climate change is impacting the landscape of New England over the changing of the seasons; how it affects the people here, and gives you an opportunity to share your thoughts about what aspects you might miss most about New England’s current climate. The exhibit also includes an interactive global climate change table where you can simulate the affects slight changes in water temperature have on our land, water, people and animals. Compare coastal flooding today with projections more than 100 years in the future.

Mapping the seasonsArranged as "clusters" of information, with interactive tables and programs, the 1,000 square foot exhibit focuses on thematic issues related to global climate change using a combination of scenic treatment, graphics, multimedia and artifact displays. An additional multi-touch, multi-user computer game places climate change in a global context.

Seasons of Change was developed by members of the New England Science Center Collaborative and Brown University’s Watson Institute of International Studies and Center for Climate Studies under a grant from the National Science Foundation. It takes a look at how climate change affects things like invasive species, foliage, maple products, fishing and more. As the exhibit materials state: “climate change does not only take away things that we will miss, it brings things we wished were not heading our way “.
 

This exhibit will be at ECHO through March 25, 2012.
