Networks are everywhere and serve as a great tool for teaching science, mathematics, social studies and more. 'Connections'  utilizes state of the art technology to explore the new science of networks. A spiderís web is a complex network and a river with its unstructured branches actually demonstrates a so-called emergent network.

'Connections' will teach visitors about the differences, and similarities between a planned, man-made network and an emergent network, a natural network existing in nature. State-of-the-art technology lets visitors investigate how the World Wide Web is like a real spiderís web, or how a school cafeteria is like a school of fish.

On Earth, wherever there is life, there is water. Are there other places in our solar system that might contain water and perhaps life? Join in this fascinating exploration in The Search for Life Beyond Earth. Discover what scientists have learned about life in extreme environments on Earth and how this is suggesting what kind of life we look for in our Solar System and Beyond.

Visit a boiling hot mud pot in Yellowstone National Park, a high temperature and pressure deep sea vent on the Earth's ocean floor, and a river in Spain as acidic as stomach acid. We couldn't live in any of these places, but microbes thrive! Step on a scale and see how much water you are made of and learn why water is important for all life.

Think like a scientist and drive a Mars "Rover" looking for signs of water, practice collecting a microbe sample from a deep gold mine like a scientist, take a trip to the ocean floor in the Alvin submersible, and solve a puzzle about the surface of Europa. All along the way discover how understanding life in extreme places on Earth help direct our search for life on Mars, Europa, Titan, and even deep space.
