Earth Gallery Details
Earth Science Gallery at Children’s City is the first Earth Science exhibition of its kind in the MENA region. The four exhibitions helps to discover and explore the wonders of the earth systems.
The first exhibition is composed by two timelines displayed on this wall:
The first one is about the formation of Matter and the Universe, the Big Bang theory, how far away we are from the stars, and what scientists think will be the future of the universe.
Walking by the second part of the wall will take you on a 4.5 billion year journey through time.
The second timeline is about the history of our planet Earth. It shows the development of the Planet from its formation to the present day. It displays the variable concentration of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and its relation to the development and evolution of living organism in the planet.
The second exhibition is the Liquid Galaxy were you can float over the cities and countries looking for interesting information about life in the planet, people, places wherever you want to travel.
The third exhibition is the Simulator. There you can choose what to see, are you interested on climate, wind patterns, ocean currents? Where are the volcanoes? How big a tsunami wave can be?
The fourth exhibition, Science On a Sphere, will take you to space and you will be able to see our planet as the astronauts do.
Earth Gallery Shows:
Blue Planet provides viewers with an overview of how water shapes our planet and nearly every aspect of our lives. Using data sets from a variety of sources, including NOAA and NASA, the movie presents water as the driver of Earth's dynamic systems, the source of all life on the planet, and it underscores just how rare and precious Earth's fresh water resource is. Blue Planet is a seven minute, narrated movie that was produced for the traveling exhibition WATER: H2O=Life.*
Blue Planet was produced by the Science Museum of Minnesota in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
Age group: 9-15 years old
Energy Planet provides viewers with a brisk overview of the energy challenges facing our planet and how renewable energy technologies can help meet them.
Using data sets from NOAA, NASA and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the movie provides an overview of the economic, security and climate challenges that fossil fuels create as the industrial world's dominant energy source. And it suggests how scientific research has expanded and accelerated the generation of electricity from solar and wind resources on a large scale, as well as vehicle fuels made from biological sources, in order to provide the world with cleaner sustainable energy.
Age group: 9-15 years old
Energy Revolution is an inspiring, in-depth look at how rising temperatures are changing Earth's climate and the ways that renewable energy technologies can help address the problem by reducing carbon emissions. Using dazzling animation and data sets from NOAA, NASA and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the movie examines research into five transformational renewable energy technologies: cellulosic ethanol fuel, energy-efficient buildings, solar cells, new batteries and Smart Grid electrical transmission.
Energy Revolution is a narrated animated movie that was produced for Science On a Sphere® by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo.
Age group: Above 11-15 years old
Frozen features the global cryosphere, those places on Earth where the temperature doesn't generally rise above water's freezing point. As one of the most directly observable climate gauges, the changing cryosphere serves as a proxy for larger themes. The movie brings the Earth alive, projected onto spherical movie screens hanging in the center of darkened theaters. Turning in space, the sphere becomes a portal onto a virtual planet, complete with churning, swirling depictions of huge natural forces moving below.
As a proxy for climate change, changing ice opens a dialogue about a variety of subjects, from the importance of gathering long terms records about the Earth, to the techniques scientists use to study our home from space, to the day-to-day habits that individuals and communities around the world adopt in relation to their environment.
Age group: Above 12-17 years old
