The Creatures of Light Exhibit will open tomorrow, September 24th at the Michigan Science Center located in Detroit! What an interesting display of the wild ways of nature.
From backyard fireflies to deep-sea fish, Earth is full of organisms that glow. One of the world’s most fantastic wonders is bioluminescence – the ability to produce light through chemical reactions. Sept. 24 through Jan. 15, the Michigan Science Center will host Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence – an exciting journey through distant caves, tropical lagoons, ocean lairs and more.
“Light is abundant in our world, yet we’re still fascinated by it,” said Dr. Tonya Matthews, president and CEO, Michigan Science Center. “In Creatures of Light, we’ll meet plants and animals that have learned to harness and control light for themselves. It’s no wonder that these creatures continue to fascinate both scientists and novices alike.”
Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence
Visitors will move through six re-created environments, from woods populated with mushrooms and fireflies, to New Zealand caves filled with glowworms. Guests will also experience a bioluminescent bay, florescent corals, jelly fish, and the deep ocean with models of predators and prey.
Multimedia inter-actives, larger-than-life models and amazing lighting effects and more will transform MiSci into a world of bioluminescence.
