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

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.

SCHEDULE

Martin Eden
November 20-22

“The film is a masterpiece, . . . see it any way you can.” Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine. Winner of the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival and adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London—yet set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy’s history—Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics. Martin (played by Luca Marinelli, who won the award for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival for his performance) is a self-taught proletarian with artistic aspirations who hopes that his dreams of becoming a writer will help him rise above his station and marry a wealthy young university student (Jessica Cressy).
129 minutes; Italian with English subtitles

 

Radium Girls
November 27-29

“A worthy entry in the category of workers’ rights movies, Radium Girls, like Silkwood, is based on actual events. Directors Lydia Dean Pilcher and Ginny Mohler reveal a little-known part of history with a loudly beating feminist heart and a narrative grounded in reality.” Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, New York Times. In the 1920s, a group of factory workers advocate for safer work conditions after some of their colleagues become ill from radium exposure.
109 minutes

 

Dear Santa
December 4-6

For 100 years, the US Postal Service has run Operation Santa, which filters hundreds of thousands of letters addressed to Santa and delivers them not to the North Pole but to program centers around the country, from New York City to small towns where the post office is often the heart of the community. From there, the letters are sent to strangers who, out of the goodness of their hearts, help deliver toys to those in need and make some dreams come true.
Dear Santa follows the delivery of one letter that requests something other than a toy, and the film examines the value of this American tradition and asks audiences to think about how they can make the world a better place.
84 minutes

 

Billie
December 11-13

In 1971, journalist Linda Lipnack Kuehl set out to write the definitive biography of Billie Holiday. Over 8 years, she tracked down and tape-recorded over 200 hours of interviews with the extraordinary characters that populated the iconic singer’s short, tumultuous life. However, Linda’s book was never finished and the tapes never heard—until now.
NR; 96 minutes

 

Farewell Amor
December 18-20

“A moving exploration of the meaning of home.” Beandrea July, Hollywood Reporter.
An Angolan woman and her daughter reunite with her husband after spending 17 years in exile. Now strangers, they find common ground in their shared love of dance.
NR; 101 minutes

 

Wild Mountain Thyme
December 26 & 27 and January 2 & 3

John Patrick Shanley, who created the classic Moonstruck, brings his sweeping romantic vision to Ireland with Wild Mountain Thyme. The headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt) has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly’s love. The problem is Anthony (Jamie Dornan) seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father Tony’s (Christopher Walken) plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew (Jon Hamm), Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams in this comedic, moving, and wildly romantic tale.
PG-13; 102 minutes
