Shrink to 1/100th of your size—and examine soil science from a new perspective.
In this immersive exhibition, you’ll “shrink” to 1/100th of your actual size—smaller than a penny—to take a closer look at the soil beneath our feet.
Once you’re down to size, you’ll meet a creepy, crawly cast of characters, including a giant mole cricket and a wolf spider. You’ll learn about the diversity of life that soil supports and how every species needs soil to survive and thrive.
What on earth will you see during your Underground Adventure?
- Insects that dig holes and move earth
- A protective earwig mama and her babies
- Ants hard at work
- Plant root systems and how they feed off the soil
