PSC Working on "Ships Ahoy!" Traveling Exhibition

The Pacific Science Center is working on plans for a 2008 traveling exhibit called "Ships Ahoy!" which will look at the science behind boats and ships. Although plans are preliminary, the exhibit will likely examine all the basics of boats: why boats float, how they move, wind power and steam/diesel power, ancient and modern navigation, and so on. The exhibit will have the usual PSC hallmarks, including hands-on experiences for young children. The projected budget for development, construction, and promotion is $1.6 million. Organizers are now putting together an advisory group. For more information, contact Felicia Maffia, Manager of Exhibit Development & Special Projects, 206-443-4626,
