Check out these excerpts from The Houston Chronicle:
“We take the science and education piece of it very seriously, but we have to make it fun and find a way to spark people’s imagination and hope that they want to learn more after they leave the museum,” Bartsch said. “It’s all incredibly cool.”
Also new is “Energy City” a 2,500-square-foot, 3-D landscape representing Houston, the surrounding Gulf coastal waters, and the terrain of southeast Texas.
The milk-white model city is eye-catching. But the magic really happens when the museum staffers turn on a series of projectors that cast images on the models, simulating windows on buildings, turning day to night, and making cars and trains “move” throughout the city.”
