Plankton Populations Exhibit (Clip)
Date: October 10, 2013
Running Time: 00:03:44

Plankton Populations is an exhibit at the Exploratorium that gives museum visitors both a global and microscopic view of the oceans' plankton, with social, open-ended interaction. The exhibit is an adaptation of a model created by scientists at MIT’s Darwin Project, which allows researchers to test how plankton respond to different environmental conditions, such as climate change.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
