THE LEGACY SQUARE
Experience the evolution of the Garden of Science—from its pioneering accomplishments to its transition into a modern, innovative facility. The first area when entering the Clore Garden of Science, this outdoor space will display some of the Garden’s most timeless and beloved exhibits.
A uniquely designed outdoor area, the amphitheater will double as a giant periodic table, where each seat is a separate element. With the capacity to host large groups of up to 250 people, the amphitheater will highlight the elements and the chemical composition of the world around us, while providing an area for large scale experiments, displays, and concerts.
The WaterWorks system will be an integral part of every exhibit area in the outdoor Clore Garden. Winding its way through experiments and beautifying the landscape, WaterWorks will be a continuous reminder of the necessity, beauty, and power of one of our most valuable resources.
Drawing on the philosophy that an artistically designed area inspires curiosity better than a typical classroom, Learning Spaces will provide small groups with a location to meet, discuss, and conduct experiments. Each space will be outfitted with computer screens and full lab capabilities.
