From Here to There
About the Traveling Exhibition
Ride a hovercraft to experience air pressure; float a boat to experiment with air flow. Lift, launch and levitate your way through hands-on exhibits to explore how things move by land, sea and air. Experiment with hands-on exhibits that make learning about gravity, friction, and the laws of motion fun!
From Here to There consists of fun, interactive exhibits that are color-coded and divided into three main categories: transportation by land, sea and air. Each exhibit is designed to spark conversation and encourage interaction among families, friends and other museum visitors.
Visitors can turn up the heat to launch a colorful hot air balloon, operate an authentic canal lock system to move a boat from one water level to the next, and experiment with pneumatics, pulleys, hydraulics and levers to see what kind of mechanical advantage works best.
Air Tubes allow visitors to send colored balls in a rushing channel of air from one station to another. Visitors can watch the balls as they dart across walls, over their heads, and appear at the other station in record time.
