Water in Our World exhibit

Do you expect to have access to clean water every day? What if you didn't have access to clean water? Do you think humans have enough water that falls from the clouds, flows through the streams and comes out of our pipes?

The exhibit "Water in Our World" explores the ways we get water, why we need to clean it and the future of this most precious resource. As you explore "Water in Our World," you'll experiment with different ways to make water "flow" through models and learn how much water your everyday activities require.

"Water in Our World" was developed in partnership with UNC's campuswide theme. Support for the exhibit was provided by the UNC Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost. Additional support was provided by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.
