The National Scenic Visitors Center enjoyed a robust week of exhibiting and networking at last September’s Association of Science and Technology Centers National Convention, held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now we’re off and running with a new slate of glorious possibilities shining in this new year.
We’re polishing up our prototype Earthwalk Explorer walkable relief map for use in a number of scenarios, including installations for educational use that will allow students and teachers to engineer their own Geoshows, presented on the 16 x 8 ft. map.
We’re also garnering the resources and personnel to forward our grandest vision of all – the 100 yard long Earthwalk USA map. A feasibility study is in the works, administered by members of the NSVC Board, Advisory Council, Consulting Crew, and Volunteers; all key contributors to our mission.
We look forward to bringing our project to culmination, noting that the long journey to this point has been similar to the terrain we showcase – complete with hills, valleys, mountains, and open highways!
For a summary our story to date, take a look at this NSVC Showcase Video, which provides a glimpse into our colorful past and expectant future.
