Hooo boy, it sure is busy around here! In two days the new visiting exhibit opens, and in just over a month our new agriculture exhibit will be ready for visitors.
Opening on June 17, 2009, the largest exhibit we’ve ever had will take you on a tour of the agriculture industry in Saskatchewan. From driving a combine to shipping lentils to India, this incredibly exhilarating exhibit will show how high-tech agriculture has become.
With tons of interactive elements, Richardson Ag-grow-land is an ambitious, innovative permanent exhibit–and it was all created by the amazing staff at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. But I get no credit–I just walk through every once in a while to watch the progress and make comments like, “Really? A train? Cool!”
Trust me when I say this exhibit is really cool. Imagine climbing up an inland terminal and sliding back down again! Or sitting in the kid-sized combine actually harvesting your fields of canola!
Here are some photos I took today of the progress:
