EXHIBIT PROPOSALS

Winner Chosen for "Biological Structures & Functions" Exhibit Proposal

As part of a grant from the Institute of Museum & Library Services, the Bisbee Science Lab put out a call for locally-sourced exhibits with the theme: Biological Structures & Functions.

 

We are proud to announce the winner: “Your Hip Bone’s Connected to a Whale’s Bone,” an exhibit that uses the study of bones to find connections between biological systems.

 

Proposed by two University of Arizona PhD students, Marta Schoenle & Megan Ewbank, this exhibit will travel as part of the Sky Island STEAM Express’s inaugural trip through Cochise County. We are so excited for this new exhibit, and want to thank Marta & Megan, as well as IMLS and the BSERC Team that make this all possible!

Stay tuned to see the exhibit when it's finished and visit our Sky Island STEAM Express page to see where it will be traveling!

Winner Chosen for "Agrivoltaics" Proposal

The Bisbee Science Exploration and Research Center is pleased to announce a winner for our last call for exhibit proposals!

 

Christian Sawyer, a Douglas resident and homesteader with a background in telecommunications engineering, has been awarded funding to create our next mobile exhibit: Aqua-Agrivoltaics.

This exhibit explores the intersection of crop production, solar energy, and water conservation. It will travel throughout Cochise County as part of our mobile lab, Sky Island STEAM Express. The tour of this exhibit begins at the end of July and will likely extend to October.
