It has self-sustainable energy sources, like solar panels and a wind turbine for hands-on student learning opportunities. It also has a weather center where weather patterns and analysis can be learned.
Melissa Spalding, the museum’s Director of Education, says the students and teachers can use the outdoor classroom for their STEM programs .
“We are going to be teaching about renewable energy sources, conservation efforts, and water purification,” said Spalding.
