Lookout Tower is a great spot to soak up some amazing views. This exhibit is unique in that it allows visitors the opportunity to look out on the landscape in a variety of ways. The Infrared imaging reveals a heat view of the environment prompting visitors to ask questions about heat loss and gain. Why is the ocean cold, but the rooftops hot? Why is a car’s hood hot, but the windshield cold? This encourages conversations about sustainability. The other viewers use lenses and mirrors to change perspectives. There is a telescope that allows visitors to see far away, a periscope that allows visitors to see around corners and a kaleidoscope that creates patterns out of the landscape.
