Introduction to Our Project

We live in a dynamic world that is regulated by a vast web of cycles and systems. Each of these systems is dependent on a number of different factors. What we as individuals often do not see is the impact that our daily actions have on the systems that govern the equilibrium of the world. An understanding of what these cycles and systems are, and how they work and interact is important, so that we may better understand how our individual actions truly do affect the world.

Cycles and Systems, A World in Motion intends to develop an understanding of fundamental cycles and systems that are part of everyday life. In addition, the goal of the exhibit is to give people a better understanding of the links and similarities between natural and human-made cycles so that they can better understand the impact their decisions will have on the world.
