Included in General Admission | In Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science, students and families learn the ways in which traditional knowledge of indigenous communities and cutting–edge science are being applied to improve our world. The 2,000 square–foot traveling exhibition tells the stories of four communities, giving visitors real life examples of how traditional knowledge and Western science provide complementary solutions to ecological and health challenges. Through the voices of elders and youth, hands–on interactives, and clever video games, visitors gather resources, examine data, and take part in the growing movement towards sustainability and reclamation of age–old practices.
