We've officially got not only a new water table, but a new exhibit as well! The new water table was manufactured and installed by a company called Boss Display in Columbus, Ohio. They do water exhibits all over the world and we were pleased to partner with them on this project. The new water table is about three times as large as our previous one and has many interactive stations for visitors. There are local elements like the Fire Tower and the Sleeping Giant designed into the water table to connect Helena to the exhibit.
In addition to the water table, we also have a new video kiosk titled Montana H20 Discovery that will highlight videos that deal with water topics all around Montana, including a video from the students at East Valley Middle School!
The new exhibit, Take Flight, is a hands-on exhibit that explores the science behind flight. There will be a number of different interactive exhibit stations including a Hang Glider Simulator, Vertical Wind Tunnel and Flying Cups, RC Flight Simulators, Bernoulli Blower and educational videos provided by our lead sponsor Boeing.
Take Flight will be on display through Memorial Day. We hope you can come and check it out!
