Exhibition overview

EcoLogic has been completely redeveloped to explore some of the world’s hottest topics today: climate change, resource management – with a special focus on water – sustainable technologies and design. Discover the science behind global warming and what we can do to prevent it from getting worse. Students can explore the evidence that humans are causing climate change by burning coal, oil and gas (fossil fuels). Learn how precious natural resources like natural water are managed. Students will discover what they can do to prevent climate change from getting worse through examining alternate ways of generating power, see how their food choices impact the environment and explore our “eco-friendly” home.

Highly engaging, the exhibition utilises a variety of objects, interactives, images and audiovisuals, to provide an integrated and multimedia environment that encourages student enquiry, reflection and fosters experiential and collaborative learning.
