Last Call For Traveling Exhibits

If you still haven’t seen our fall traveling exhibits Zoo In You, Human Plus and The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards then this month is literally your last chance as these exhibits will be leaving OSC the first week of January.

At Zoo In You you’ll explore the millions of microorganisms that work every day to keep you happy and healthy. While at Human Plus you’ll hear true-life stories from engineers and the people they’ve helped through designing tools to enrich their lives. Maybe try to monoski down the slopes or DJ from a wheel chair!

At The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards you may well laugh like a hyena at 41 high-resolution pictures that capture animal expressions and some very comical coincidences.
