Well we’ve got a little over four months before the new Discovery Center here at @qldmuseum opens and all of this hard work goes on permanent display. Since I’ve been working so hard on creating new case layouts, repairing specimens, creating exhibit content, etc, my illustration work has taken a step back. So, as a push to keep those creative juices flowing and create a bit of anticipation for the grand opening of this new and improved exhibit, I’ll be posting a critter a week from each case that I’ve worked on so far.
So here’s the first little critter. Carpet Python (Morelia spilota) from the Snakes case. The most widespread of the Australian Pythons, these guys are beautiful non-venomous snakes that can be found in grasslands, rainforests, woodlands, urban areas, and even in your own kitchen cupboard. Capable of reaching up to 4 meters at the largest, they’ve been documented eating possums, something you should really google. They’re beautiful animals that should be respected but never feared. A true Aussie icon in my opinion!
En el New York Botanical Garden se encuentra este jardín diseñado para niños con discovery center, instrumentos musicales, un teatro pintar con agua, laberinto entre algunas de sus actividades que estimula a los niños no sólo la creatividad, sino que su sociabilidad, comprensión y respeto del medio ambiente. #nyboranicalgarden#discoverycenter#gardenforkids
Hi, I’m James Turner, @ICRscience Media and Production Engineer. Over the last couple of years, it’s been anything but business-as-usual in this creation ministry. We’re all contributing our time, talents, and financial resources to make the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History a place of excellence and impact. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to produce sound effects for the Discovery Center’s T. rex and ambient noise for the Garden of Eden and Ice Age areas. As I’ve worked on these projects, it’s been fun to think about what life was like during these different times in history.⠀
When the Discovery Center opens, visitors will encounter scientific evidence that empowers them in their Christian faith and understanding. I pray that those who are exposed to biblical truth for the first time will start asking important questions and be drawn to know more about the awesome wonders of our Creator.⠀
My wife Julie and I plan to bring our two kids to visit as well. There’s so much we want to teach them about God’s Word and its application for daily life. The Discovery Center will present solid evidence that supports the truths we strive to instill.⠀
But this Discovery Center isn’t just for ICR staff and our families. It’s not just for believers or skeptics. We’re building this for you. We’re building this for your kids, your friends, and your church community.⠀
Will you donate to the Discovery Center so that we can open it next year?
Happy Monday! Check out the "Design with the 90%" exhibit at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center. The exhibit features HeartStrings created by the Mother Health International team in Uganda. We are proud to work with Mother Health International to provide access to this technology.

We’re putting the finishing touches on the outside of the ICR Discovery Center of Science and Earth History! Soon, we’ll install huge tiles of fossil replicas along the main wall of the building. The paddlefish example shown on this page is 10 feet across and sure to draw attention from passing drivers on this busy street.⠀
Now we’ve turned our focus to the interior details. @ICRscience leadership and science staff are collaborating with creative experts to make these engaging exhibits as biblically and scientifically accurate as possible. This brings up questions few think to ask. What trees best represent the pre-Flood world? Which grasses belong in the Job diorama? Was the wooly rhino brunette or blond?⠀
Our muralist finished backdrops for the Garden of Eden and Flood exhibits, and is now painting Ice Age scenery. Workers are spraying concrete that will eventually contain the garden’s waterfall. And the Grand Canyon exhibit carved deep into the Discovery Center floor is beginning to take shape.⠀
We recently installed over 200 seats inside our new auditorium, where we look forward to hosting science presentations that will encourage and educate visiting families from across the nation. A generous ICR supporter who owns a seating company provided these chairs for the Discovery Center at his cost. We’re so thankful for God’s provision through His people!⠀
[Help Us Complete the Exhibits]⠀
We’re developing the most educational and inspirational exhibits possible, pointing people to the truth of our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ. Visit ICR.org/DiscoveryCenter to find out how you can join us in this vital project. Partner with us in prayer and help us finish strong!
One of my dreams, to build a science and technology museum/discovery center in Jakarta.

“My position as director of the museum, I hope, does allow girls to say: ‘That’s a thing girls do, not something that’s foreign.’ Obviously the aerospace industry historically has been dominated by men and you could say: ‘Well, why does that matter?’ To me it’s because you’re leaving talent on the table and you’re really not tapping into the talent of all your population. If we want to move forward, be innovative and know what’s the next Wright Flyer and who are the people who are going to work on the next form of getting people to Mars, we need that workforce, we need kids to get inspired and say: ‘I can do that.’” #antarexxa#astronaut#moon#mars#womeninstem#science#stem#tech#swejakarta#mimpi#goal#visimisi#sciencemuseum#discoverycenter

Had such an inspiring conversation today with an amazing young lady during a coaching session!!!! I sat down to meditate after and reflect and this is what came out on the paper. This analogy and image came up in our conversation when talking about being true to ourselves. I love the beauty the mind and heart can make when they are in sync. “How do your roots grow? Shallow, in order to live up to everyone else’s expectations of you OR deep, living up to the best and most profound version of YOU. A giant tree with shallow roots is easily blown over. A giant tree with deep roots cannot be swayed. Stay true to your roots.” - in service, coach Matt. #coachmattaz#cti#coactivecoaching#discoverycenter#empowermepower
