Outreach to Space (OTS)

 

Our OUTREACH TO SPACE  traveling exhibition was designed by San Francisco’s Exploratorium. Built to withstand the rigors of family experimentation, our exhibits teach children and families about Space and Space travel through hands-on exploration.

This traveling exhibition features eleven, stand-alone exhibits, wall banners, expendable parts and set-up instructions. The entire set of exhibits can be easily set up by one person using nothing more than a light hand truck. One exhibit, Different Worlds, Different Weights, allows guests to compare the weight of an apple on Earth against the weight of an apple on other bodies in the Solar System. Another star attraction is Space Colony, which encourages children to use LEGO® brand blocks and a lot of imagination to construct their own visions for the future of space exploration. Children and adults alike enjoy experimenting with Pressure Suit, allowing them to pump air out of the exhibit chamber and to observe two “Bug Out Bob” aliens inside, one fitted with a pressurized helmet and one exposed to the dropping pressure.

Our Outreach to Space exhibition rental is $4,100 for a 12 week venue. The exhibition is shipped in custom blanket-wrapped covers. Those booking the exhibition are expected to provide both incoming and outgoing shipping from Evansville, Indiana to the display site and back when finished. Images of each exhibit may be viewed below.

 

OTS is also available for rental  groups in the Southern Indiana area for special events and programs ranging from one day to one week. Rental rates start at $255/day, plus mileage with a discount for two or more days. Contact  Mitch Luman, at 812-425-2406 extension 227 for additional pricing and availability.
