Sign up now to borrow a new traveling exhibit!

Postby laconte » Fri Jul 02, 2010 4:16 pm

The Lunar and Planetary Institute is offering small, three-panel exhibits with colorful images and text to share current lunar science and exploration stories. The displays are designed for libraries and can be used to excite and engage patrons in further exploration through library resources and programs. Each exhibit consists of three single-sided banners, each of which measure 32 inches wide by 83 inches tall when displayed.

Priority for the exhibits is given to libraries, particularly those serving at-risk audiences. Aside from this priority, exhibits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Although the exhibits are available for free, we do request that any organization able to pay for the shipping do so; this allows support for shipping to organizations that do not have funds.

In order to request an exhibit, an organization must complete the Exhibit Request Form. After it has been received, you will be contacted to discuss logistics.

Please visit our website, http://www.lpi.usra.edu/nlsi/education/exhibits/about/, for detailed information and links to the online Exhibit Request Form, Loan Guidelines, and a list of the topics currently featured.

We hope you and your community enjoy this resource!

The Lunar and Planetary Institute has expanded its collection of small, three-panel exhibits -- and they are available for your institution to borrow! The displays are designed for libraries and can be used to excite and engage patrons in further exploration through library resources and programs. Each exhibit consists of three single-sided banners, each of which measure 32 inches wide by 83 inches tall when displayed. Several topics in lunar science and exploration are explored:

The Moon: Cosmic Decoder Ring
The Moon’s craters are a decoding tool that has allowed us to understand the planets in our solar system. This exhibit has 3D images and comes with 100 pairs of 3D glasses.

Treasure Hunt in Earth's Attic
Like an attic of ancient treasures, the Moon preserves Earth’s lost history. Discover how the conditions on the Moon are providing valuable clues to our own planet’s beginnings!

Earth’s Daughter
Our Moon was born of Earth. See how the Moon’s own characteristics and new animated computer models are filling in the pages of the Moon’s birth story.

A Storm of Asteroids
Long ago, enormous asteroids pelted our Moon — and Earth! Learn about the mystery surrounding this rain of planetary debris, and the storm tracks that scientists are examining today.

Impacts: Delivering Death and Fostering Life
Scientists are investigating the relationship between impacts and the development of life.

Priority for the exhibits is given to libraries, particularly those serving at-risk audiences. Aside from this priority, exhibits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
