FORT WORTH MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND HISTORY TO OPEN CUTTING-EDGE EXHIBIT WITH $255,000 FACEBOOK GRANT 

Fort Worth, TX (December 2, 2020) — The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will open an exciting high-tech exhibit in Spring 2021 linking science with current events like the upcoming Mars rover landing, tracking hurricanes, or marking Covid-19 cases worldwide. The Current Science Studio will include an array of low-touch interactives and cutting-edge media, including a dozen holograms and a giant orb floating from the ceiling that can display content from NASA and NOAA.

Facebook sponsored the new 2,500-square-foot studio with a generous $255,000 grant.

“It’s important we partner with organizations with a forward-thinking view on the use of technology,” said Doug Roberts, Ph.D., an astrophysicist and Chief Public Engagement Officer at the Museum. “This makes science relevant and accessible whether you are looking at big data or a physical object. And it aligns with what Facebook is doing to connect people around the world.”

Facebook’s investment in these innovations will impact thousands of children who come to the Museum annually for field trips, as well as the hundreds of thousands of Museum visitors.

“Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is an incredible community resource. Facebook is proud to continue our strong partnership with the Museum and support this new, marquee technology, which will directly impact STEM education in Tarrant County,” said Holli Davies, Facebook Community Development Regional Manager. “Facebook has been part of the Fort Worth community since opening our data center in 2017, and we’re committed to playing a positive role in Tarrant County and supporting its students. We can’t wait to see the exhibit come to life in 2021.”

Anchoring the new exhibit space will be Science On a Sphere®(SOS), a giant global display system suspended from the ceiling developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The large, interactive sphere will be among the highest-resolution anywhere in the world. SOS uses computers and video projectors to display around 1,500 views of Earth, planetary systems, and other animations. Science On a Sphere® presents images of Earth’s atmospheric storms, climate change, ocean temperatures, and outer space phenomena in a way that is both intuitive and captivating.

“Our goal is to connect guests to relevant discoveries and news happening right now,” said Morgan Rehnberg, Ph.D., a planetary scientist and Chief Scientist at the Museum. “We could conceptualize an exhibit on the science of vaccinations, for instance, and how the new Covid-19 vaccine compares to other vaccines throughout history. Or we could track a hurricane or wildfires on Earth or space events like the rover landing on Mars next year.”

Rehnberg said the exhibit will react quickly to news events and change with the flip of a switch. All studio elements, including a dozen holograms, will be connected to one theme for either self-exploration or a tour with a Museum guide. Museum staff has technical and creative experience producing interactive, immersive visual experiences for galleries, virtual reality, and 360 display systems. Another goal is to share the technology and stories created for the Current Science Studio with other museums, Rehnberg added. Universities and colleges in the area also are interested in the exhibit’s potential for research and exploration. 

Roberts said the exhibit will also show history, acting like a time machine. The Museum will display some artifacts as holographic images, enabling visitors to superimpose holographic projection onto physical objects, enabling guests to make a deeper connection.

“We’re trying to create fun, new ways to engage our guests inside the Museum,” Roberts said. “Post COVID, people are going to want to get away from Zoom calls and engage in social learning.” The Current Science Studio continues the Museum’s tradition of engaging guests in immersive learning and exploring how we all will learn in the future.

TBT Presents The Nutcracker

TBT Presents The Nutcracker

Texas Ballet Theater (TBT) will present a filmed production of Artistic Director Ben Stevenson, O.B.E.’s The Nutcracker online December 14-26, 2020, to keep the holiday spirit alive amid COVID-19.

The nonprofit ballet company cancelled its annual run of the production due to pandemic-related safety restrictions both within the company and at its performance venues in Dallas and Fort Worth. Instead, TBT will offer a full-length film of The Nutcracker that patrons can enjoy directly on the company’s website, www.texasballettheater.org.

“The Nutcracker is part of so many families’ holiday traditions, and this year they can keep that tradition going by watching from the safety and comfort of their homes,” Executive Director Vanessa Logan said. “We are excited to offer this alternative and connect with audiences in our Dallas-Fort Worth community and beyond.”

Digital tickets are $30 and include access to a new, 30-minute version of The Nutty Nutcracker, the company’s popular annual spoof. Traditionally a one-night-only event, patrons can watch The Nutty Nutcracker on TBT’s website as well.

The pandemic also disrupted the company’s annual matinee performances for local elementary school students. This year, TBT will instead offer the filmed performance of The Nutcracker directly to schools and school districts, including Dallas ISD.

Tickets are priced per household and patrons can purchase them through the company’s Box Office, either online or by calling 877-828-9200 option 1.

To learn more or to connect with TBT, visit www.texasballettheater.org or follow the company on social media @txballettheater.
