Science Alive

September 1st, 2020 - August 31st, 2023 | PROJECT

The Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium will design, produce, and install Science Alive—a 1,500-square-foot astronomy and meteorology exhibit—as well as develop and implement supporting programs to promote lifelong learning through participation in scientific explorations. Science Alive will leverage the museum’s strengths in meteorology and astronomy by translating these core competencies into dynamic and relevant exhibits and programs. It also will address the community’s STEM educational deficiencies through science methodologies and content. The project’s exhibition and programming components will benefit students, visitors, and the community.
