Charlie and Kiwi's Evolutionary Adventure Premieres at NYSCI
Queens, N.Y. — Go on an evolutionary adventure and discover the link between dinosaurs and modern birds when the new exhibition Charlie and Kiwi’s Evolutionary Adventure opens this spring at the New York Hall of Science. The new bilingual English/Spanish exhibition premieres at the Hall on May 23.
Using a kid-friendly storyline, Charlie and Kiwi’s Evolutionary Adventure follows a boy named Charlie as he works on a book report about kiwis, a flightless bird found in New Zealand. To understand how kiwis evolved, Charlie travels back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. Visitors will learn with Charlie by unraveling puzzles, playing games, exploring computer interactives, and observing live birds.
The exhibition tackles the subject of evolution in a way that appeals to kids of all ages with drawings by Peter Reynolds, the award-winning illustrator of Judy Moody and other children’s books. Charlie and Kiwi’s Evolutionary Adventure will remain at NYSCI through August 30, at which time the exhibition will begin its tour to science museums throughout the country, including the Miami Science Museum and the North Museum of Natural History & Science in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
