The National Scenic Visitors Center presented at the Association of Science and Technology Centers conference on September 22 in Hartford, Connecticut, facilitating an important inaugural reveal of the NSVC / Earthwalk USA project. Executive Director Mary Ellen Snyder and professional museum consultant Amy Hollander did the honors. In their presentation, they explained the Earthwalk Traveler concept to the Museum marketplace – our future hosts for this exhibit.
The NSVC poster session description read as follows: “Announcing development of the Earthwalk TravelerSM – a 6000 sq. ft. nationally traveling exhibit! Your visitor base will be immersed in this innovative exhibit which reinvents how they experience the natural geography of America. Its centerpiece will be a 2000 sf walkable relief map enhanced with digitized storytelling. This tactile, auditory, visual and spatial learning environment offers multiple layers of understanding– allowing visitors to connect with the environmental, cultural, and historical forces shaping our past, present and future.”
