Rainforest Adventure sprouts up at the science center!
May 4 - September 4
Exciting mysteries await visitors at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium with the newest exhibit,Rainforest Adventure, opening May 4and staying until September 4, 2019.
“One of the least known habitats on Earth, the rainforest is filled with exciting mysteries waiting to be discovered – just like Rainforest Adventure,” said Kate Arrizza, CEO of the Science Center. “Abundant and sometimes unfamiliar sights, sounds, and plant and animal biodiversity come together to create an interactive experience about one of the world’s greatest treasures, and we’re excited to showcase that here at the Science Center!”
In this exhibit for all ages, visitors experiment with physical and mental challenges as they descend through the four layers of rainforest. By the time visitors reach the forest floor, they are better equipped with an understanding of how humans impact this diverse yet fragile forest, and how they can make a difference. Guests will see diversity across the many layers of rainforest, investigate fragility and adaptability of flora and fauna, foster awareness of biodiversity, interconnectedness and sustainability, and learn what each of us can do to preserve this vital habitat.
