Personalize an exhibit for your learning space. These FREE, open source, peer-reviewed programs have been developed for communities around the world to create their own exhibits about the Universe. 1800+ exhibits have been created so far. Depending on exhibit topic, language translations range from 4-40 languages.

In this exhibit, a series of posters and supporting materials plusactivities explore various physics concepts such as time, mass, pressure, speed, distance and rotation paired with the athletic feats of Olympians (including Paralympians). The images are aimed at helping to demonstrate the universality of physical laws and the connection between our everyday world and the Universe.

This open source, peer-reviewed program was developed for the U.S. Dept of State’s American Spaces and other similar venues worldwide to help make the physics of deep space/high energy astrophysics more relevant culturally. Current languages include: English, Portuguese and Spanish.
