New Traveling Exhibition!

Eight explorers. Six regions. One awesome journey.

Your adventure starts here!

Join us for the opening day celebration of National Geographic presents: Earth Explorers. While exploring the different regions of the world, try a hands-on activity to dive deeper into the concepts presented in the exhibition and see how it relates to life here in Tennessee.


(Note: Not all activities will be available throughout the day)

    Any Earth Explorer knows that you can’t get where you’re going without a good compass. Did you know you can make your very own compass with materials you might have at home?
    You can discover something new in your own backyard. Come create your own Tennessee Tracking Guide, so the next time you explore the wilds of Tennessee, you can identify what has crossed your path.
    By now you know that a journey to the Polar Regions requires plenty of gear to keep you warm, but what about the animals that live there all the time? How do they keep warm? Try your hand at our blubber glove experiment and see just how much difference blubber makes.

Live Science Demonstrations:

  • HOT AND COLD (at 11am, 1pm, 3pm & 5pm
    One thing that makes Earth unique is our weather patterns. Join us for this live science show and learn more about this one-of-a-kind system that makes it so we can call this planet home.
  • SCUBA SCIENCE (at 12pm & 2pm)
    Meet an explorer: our SCUBA-certified Staff Educator, Emily, and get up close with some of the gear that a diver needs to explore the ocean.
  • ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS (at 4pm, 6pm & 8pm)
    Join our Staff Educators and meet some of ASC’s own animals: May-B the Rat, Bruce the Leopard Spotted Gecko, and Garth the Pinktoe Tarantula!
