National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers
National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers revolves around some of Earth’s most spectacular eco-zones–the polar regions, oceans, rain forests, mountains and caves, and the African savanna–bringing the unparalleled adventures of National Geographic to life. Follow in the footsteps of explorers who routinely go to the ends of the Earth, all in the name of science. From coming face to face with a polar bear, to diving in a submersible, climbing to the top of a rain forest tree canopy, to soaring over the savanna in a hot air balloon.
National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers is supported locally by Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona, APS, Molina Fine Jewelers, and the employees of Arizona Science Center. The traveling exhibition is located in the Sybil B. Harrington Gallery on Level 3 of Arizona Science Center. The exhibition will be open between September 21, 2014 and January 4, 2015. Tickets are $7 plus general admission for adults, seniors, and children. Arizona Science Center members are able to enter for $5 per person.
NOW PLAYING: "Great White Shark 3D"
Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the Great White Shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Great White Shark 3D will explore the Great White’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. Great White Shark 3D aims to reveal the strength and beauty of these animals by looking through the eyes of those who have been touched by their shark encounters- Mike Rutzen, South African shark operator, who swims with Great Whites in the aptly named Shark Alley, Dr. Chris Lowe who has been tagging juvenile white sharks off the coast of Los Angeles, revealing more and more of their secret life, and two record breaking free-divers, Frederic Buyle and William Winram, who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and free diving with the sharks.

NOW PLAYING: “KILIMANJARO: TO THE ROOF OF AFRICA 2D”
Through the eyes of a team of five trekkers and a local African guide, learn of the hardships and rewards of climbing this great mountain and explore the mountain’s delicate ecosystems and natural history along the way. Travel from a lush green rainforest in a tropical jungle, upward through a dense blanket of clouds to an enchanting forest of giant plans. Cross over barren desert plains and wind-sheared rock toward brilliant snowfields and glaciers atop gaping volcanic craters. Finally reach the cold, icy summit, where the team celebrates the most challenging event of their lives.
Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa is a David Breashears Film, Produced by Kilimanjaro Inc. in collaboration with the Houston Museum of Natural Science; Museum of Science, Boston; and Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo.
