Try being a raindrop in a hectic human world in ‘Water’s Extreme Journey’

MANCHESTER — Imagine you’re a raindrop, and it’s your mission to stay clean.
The SEE Science Center on Saturday unveils “Water’s Extreme Journey,” an exhibit created by marine-life artist Wyland and Seattle-based Minotaur Mazes.
The idea is to invite people to journey through mountains, lakes, rivers and even their own backyards to get a sense of how their actions impact the environment.
“Our goal is to immerse you in the subject by making you a raindrop susceptible to the whims of human activities,” Wyland said.
The aim is to get visitors thinking about making cleaner choices and discovering the rewards of a healthy ocean.
The maze exhibit will be on view through Jan. 15, 2018, and is included in the regular admission fee of $9 for ages 3 and older.
“Clean water is an essential issue both locally and globally, and many scientists and engineers in our state are working to tackle this important issue” said Susan Howland, SEE’s executive director. “Through a partnership with Manchester Water Works, our local watershed will be highlighted in the exhibit (which will) include a model of a Slingshot water purification machine designed by SEE Founder Dean Kamen’s DEKA Research and Development.
This exhibit marks the first time a Minotaur Maze will be exhibited in New Hampshire, while completing Minotaur’s goal of building a maze in all 50 states.
