Race Exhibit Comes to Pacific Science Center
This fall, Pacific Science Center hosts an exhibit that is sure to challenge assumptions and spark conversation—RACE: Are We So Different?
This exhibition was developed by the Science Museum of Minnesota in collaboration with the American Anthropological Association in 2007. By deconstructing historical, scientific and social ideas of race, RACE: Are We So Different? aims to dismiss myths and bring understanding about what we define as race. This enlightening exhibit examines race by focusing on three main themes: the everyday experience of race, the history of the idea of race in the United States, and the science that is challenging many common assumptions about race.
In the context of the rich cultural diversity of Seattle, this exhibit calls for you to reevaluate your beliefs about race as you learn about its complexities through scientific data, compelling personal stories and hands-on activities. Seattle has its own set of cultural storylines and Pacific Science Center has the opportunity to create a larger discussion and us science to help use see through a different lens.
