Discover Earth: Our Changing Planet, a national traveling exhibition that explores Earth’s ever-changing physical and biological systems, will be on display at The Library’s Viridian Event Center from June 28 to September 22. The exhibition focuses on earth science topics—such as the differences between weather and climate, water cycle effects, ecosystem changes and invites the public to discover how local environmental changes impact our global environment.

The exhibit is divided into three areas: A. Our Changing Planet; B. Ecosystems: The Web of Life; and C. Environmental Change at Home. Exhibit components incorporate personal narratives, stunning graphics, video, animations, and simulation-based educational games.

Discover Earth: Our Changing Planet was developed by Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning (NCIL) in partnership with the American Library Association’s Public Programs Office, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, and the Afterschool Alliance. The project was made possible through support from the National Science Foundation. It is part of NCIL’s STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net).
