Getting in touch with the planet

Third-graders from St. Margaret Mary Elementary School check out the "Science on a Sphere" exhibit at Do Space on Monday.

The projections show weather and migration patterns while highlighting climate change, oceanic temperature and other environmental systems, helping to illustrate the complex processes of Earth and other celestial bodies.
