PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Discovery Center is opening its new traveling exhibition today.   The display will allow visitors to explore the science of how things move by land, sea and air.  Kristie Maher, Executive Director of the Discovery Center says in a press release that the exhibit is called “From Here to There” and consists of twelve fun, interactive displays.  She says kids are curious about how things work and “From Here to There” gives them a chance to wonder and test.  In addition, Maher says the exhibit offers a natural and effective way to learn.  The 1,500 square foot exhibition is color-coded and divided into three main categories: transportation by land, sea and air.  Visitors can turn up the heat to launch a colorful hot air balloon, operate an authentic canal lock system to move a boat from one waterway level to the next and experiment with pulleys, hydraulics and levers to see what kind of mechanical device works best; among many other activities.  The exhibition is on display through Labor Day.  The Pierre-Fort Pierre Rotary and Central Chapter of the SD Engineering Society provided volunteer support for the setup of the exhibit.
