Ice Core Interactive

Mounted on rails over three encased ice core models, this display serves as a giant magnifying glass to be moved along the ice core. While always showing a highly detailed view of the ice, facts and quiz questions pop up on screen at certain points to share what scientists have learned from studying ice cores.

When not over a specific checkpoint, only the ice core is shown.
