Have you visited the EcoTarium?

January 18, 2013

Looking for a fun and educational activity for the family? The EcoTarium may be your answerImage! Located in Worcester, this non-profit institution is dedicated to the study of science and nature.

From The Arctic Next Door that takes visitors on a virtual journey to explore the weather and geology of Mount Washington to discovering all the amazing animals living in the EcoTarium (including bald eagles, red fox and even a Giant Madagascan Hissing Cockroach!), this fun and interactive activity explores our amazing world and beyond!

DID YOU KNOW?

  • The EcoTarium’s museum building features three floors of hands-on, interactive exhibits that explore the natural and physical sciences and our New England environment.
  • Many of the animals are at the Ecotarium due to injuries, illness, human socialization, or other issues which make them unreleasable to the wild. All enclosures have been specially designed to meet the natural needs of the species as well as to accommodate any physical limitations of the individual animal.
  • The Alden Digital Planetarium was the first digital planetarium in Massachusetts! Featuring Digital Light Processing technology from Sky-Skan, Inc., the EcoTarium’s planetarium uses images from NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope to create a three-dimensional solar system projected onto a 40-foot dome.

Give your children a firm understand of our amazing  earth  and why it is so important that we all take our turn in caring for it through all the activities available at the EcoTarium! For more information, visit their website at http://www.ecotarium.org.
