New exhibition showcases the ‘Power of Science’

By News@TheU
Groundbreaking scientific research and innovative discoveries from the University of Miami will be featured in a new, permanent exhibit opening this week at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in downtown Miami.

The University of Miami and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science will debut the long-awaited “Power of Science” exhibition on July 3.

Located in the museum’s Ocean Gallery, the permanent exhibition will highlight  groundbreaking research and discoveries by University scientists and others to demonstrate how science pushes the boundaries of possibility. 

“Science provides a powerful perspective to understand and solve problems, and we are honored to play a role in this new ‘Power of Science’ exhibition at Frost Science,” said University of Miami President Julio Frenk. “Visitors will learn more about the transformative research being done at the University, which we hope will cultivate an interest in science among the museum’s youngest visitors and inspire many of them to pursue their education in the STEM disciplines, ultimately forming the next generation of scientific innovators.”Frost Museum of Science

Museum-goers are invited to step into the shoes of researchers, explorers, and inventors through a series of hands-on and cutting-edge exhibits, rare specimens, an interactive floor, a deep dive into the periodic table of elements, a showcase of collection pieces and scientific instruments used across various fields, and more.

“We are very excited for this new permanent addition to the exhibition experiences offered at Frost Science,” said Frank Steslow, Frost Science president and CEO. “’Power of Science’ is the result of our continued partnership with the University of Miami, giving our museum visitors direct access to the rich scientific research programs, academic expertise, and professional skills of the University.”

The “Power of Science” exhibition takes guests on an engaging ride through four scientific frontiers: Our Oceans, Our Environment, Our Bodies, and Our Universe. 

  • Our Oceans: Earth’s oceans, covering roughly 70 percent of the planet’s surface, are still largely unexplored. As new technology empowers scientists to explore deeper and closer than ever before, guests will learn more about our oceans’ health and how it is interconnected through global systems.

  • Our Environment: Understanding our planet’s interconnected ecosystems is an essential frontier of scientific exploration. Scientists’ expertise plays a critical role predicting and generating solutions to today’s environmental challenges, but the choices and actions of ordinary citizens will safeguard our planet’s future.

  • Our Bodies: Science is helping us understand the undiscovered inner workings of our bodies. Whether unlocking the secrets of our genetic makeup with model organisms to learn about diseases in humans or personalizing medicine at a microscopic scale, scientific innovation continues to fuel our curiosity about ourselves.

  • Our Universe: Our universe is an endless source of mystery and wonder. Scientists are exploring the dynamic nature of outer space and its fundamental questions—about matter, gravity, and the potential of life on other planets.

Entrance to the exhibition is included with regular admission. For more information on “Power of Science,” visit frostscience.org/powerofscience.
