Science On a Sphere Demonstrations

Science Central is excited to announce the opening of our new exhibit, Science On a Sphere! This dynamic new exhibit was developed for weather and science research by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA).  Using cutting-edge computer technology and projectors, Science On a Sphere creates a fun and engaging learning experience for all grade levels. Your students will take a trip through space and explore the different worlds of our solar system; discover how scientists use satellites in different fields of study; travel with a great white shark on its 6,897 mile journey across the ocean. These experiences and so much more await you at Science Central’s Science On a Sphere.
