Marketing agency Global Experience Specialists (GES) and National Geographic announce production of a new educational and interactive museum exhibition, set to begin touring museums and science centers across North America this year. The announcement was made today, April 23.
The exhibition, titled National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers, will allow museum visitors to learn what it takes to explore the wildest places on Earth.
The exhibition follows National Geographic’s explorers as they venture into dangerous and remote parts of the world—including the deepest depths of the oceans, the North and South Poles, dense rain forests, mountains and caves.[ Also Read: National Geographic Celebrates 125 Years ]
GES is now accepting submissions from venues to host this exhibition during its three-year tour.
“National Geographic’s filmmakers and explorers live in a world filled with discovery, adventure and danger, and our goal is to allow visitors across North America to walk in their shoes for a day,” said Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer for GES. “We are thrilled to partner with National Geographic to showcase the cutting-edge technologies and methods used by their explorers.”
Earth Explorers will stimulate the museum visitor’s love for science and technology.
“National Geographic has been sending its scientists, photographers and filmmakers to explore the world for more than a century,” said Kathryn Keane, vice president for National Geographic Exhibitions. “We hope this exhibition will inspire a whole new generation of explorers to be more curious about the Earth—and to dare to explore it.”
A simulated hot-air-balloon ride will allow guests to document the migration of herds across Africa, and a deep-sea submersible will take visitors on a virtual dive to survey life at all levels of the water column—from abundant coral reefs to deep-sea thermal vents.
