In addition to our permanent line-up of topics, our traveling exhibits offers unique opportunities for the coming school year. Join us this fall for Top Secret: License to Spy and Zoom Into Nano. Open until September 17, Top Secret combines secret agents, suspects, and science for an adventure unlike anything you’ve experienced. This engaging and highly interactive exhibit
will put students’ skills to the test as they experience the science, technology, and psychology employed in the intelligence  eld. Upon arrival, each student receives a “Spy File” containing their scenario and a list of six suspects. Can you crack the code on a safe, dodge laser beams, and use a night vision camera to solve puzzles and, just maybe, the entire case? Open October 7, 2017-January 7, 2018, Zoom Into Nano presents a variety of large-scale, immersive experiences in the world of nanotechnology. Zoom into tiny structures and devices to see the amazing beauty of natural and manmade objects at very high magni cation. Immerse yourself in models of atoms and molecules that are enlarged to 100 million times their actual size. Check out the full body interactive, where you use your hands to grab and pull apart the ends of a virtual RNA molecule.
Learn about all of this and more at the Durham’s annual Teachers’ Night, October 6, 2017.
