Evolving Technology (E.T.) Building

Evolving Technology (E.T.) Building

The new Evolving Technology (ET) Building at Raven Hill Discovery Center is full of character. Laid out like a capital letter “H” for history, the building already has its own charm. High windows allow for natural light, but provide uninterrupted exhibit space. Whitewashed wooden planking lines all the walls, so that each piece of technology can be accurately placed along its particular timeline. Abundant lighting floods every corner and the STEAM (STEM plus Art) classroom eagerly awaits groups of young inventors. Opened since May of 2015, the floor panels are filled with period floor coverings—stone, wood or tile & the walls also take on the character of the times. Artifacts or replicas fill each of the sixteen time periods from the Stone Age to our own Information Age. The walls are filled with examples of evolving technology from daily life, toys & games, tools and communications. Open by request.
