WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge just recently opened a brand new exhibit that focuses on the intriguing world of Forensic Science. The new Forensic Science exhibit provides a way for visitors to learn about this field of science in a fun and entertaining way.
A Look Into The New Forensic Science Exhibit
Forensic science is becoming a hot topic in pop culture, especially due to the number of popular crime dramas in television and cinema. This unique, interactive exhibit will allow guests to become hands-on forensic scientists in several different areas including 3D facial reconstruction, fingerprint identification and facial recognition.
Visitors will be able to scan their own fingerprints so that they can take a close look at their distinctive loops and whorls. There is also a booth where visitors can take a photo of themselves and see how facial recognition software matches their features up with their celebrity look-alikes. The exhibit also features an in depth display on 3D facial reconstruction that shows how police are able to create 3D models from bone fragments, photos and other clues.
The exhibit offers a lot of interesting information about forensic science, and it is made possible by experts and professionals from the National Museum and Crime & Punishment and the National Center of Missing & Exploited Children. Also involved in the creation of this special exhibit is 3DSystems and FaceCheck. The team at WonderWorks who designed the exhibit hope that the displays and interactive activities will inspire young people to consider a career in the forensic sciences.
With this new exhibit, the museum continues to provide high quality educational activities for the community. It is especially a great opportunity for school field trips and other groups to get involved in an educational activity. Of course, this forensic science exhibit isn’t the only attraction that WonderWorks has to offer. When you visit you can also check out the Indoor Ropes Challenge, where you can climb four stories of ropes through over 50 different obstacles. Also, you can play a game of laser tag with your friends in a thrilling black-lit maze, or try your luck at the Video Game Arcade. WonderWorks boasts many great activities and will keep visitors young and old busy for many hours.
Enjoy Discounted Admission at WonderWorks
You and your family can visit WonderWorks for an even more affordable price from January 10th-March 5th with the new special. The museum normally offers discounts for Sevierville Locals, but this year it will be expanded to those who live in Jefferson, Cocke and Blount counties as well.
All you need to do is show your local ID and adults can receive the discounted price of $15. Children aged 4-12 and seniors citizens will only pay $10. This is a great savings from the regular prices for general admission tickets, which are $24.99 for adults and $16.99 for children and seniors.
With these discounted prices, a visit to WonderWorks to check out this new exhibit becomes a fantastic way to entertain the family on a cold and snowy winter day.
