The Science Museum’s brand-new atmosphere gallery is a fresh and exciting way to make sense of the climate – the science of how it works, what it’s doing now and what it might do next.
Our centrepiece interactive provides the backbone to the gallery experience by placing visitors at the very heart of the climate change story. This multi-user experience takes visitors through a number of collaborative challenges all emphasising the complex inter-connectivity of the Earth’s delicate ecosystem. Ultimately every choice and decision made by visitors then impacts – in real time – on a dynamic, gallery-wide representation of the earth’s atmosphere and surface.
Visitors to the gallery will be able to find out about the science of the climate system, how climate has changed in the past and the work that scientists do to improve their understanding of the climate. They will also be able to discover how scientists have predicted changes to our climate in the future as well as developments in science and technology to respond to these changes.
The exhibition invites visitors to explore the different parts of Earth’s systems, and emphasises the complex inter-connectivity of the Earth’s delicate ecosystem. At the heart of this is a multi-user experience, shown in this BBC feature (with footage from the BBC here), are game kiosks that take visitors through collaborative challenges emphasising interconnectivity. Every choice and decision the players make impact, in real-time, a dynamic gallery-wide representation of the earth’s atmosphere and surface above them and at their feet.
