The sun as a renewable source of energy is the focus of this exhibition. The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science already makes full use of its energy with a rooftop solar farm. Located on the sixth floor terrace overlooking downtown Miami, the Sun Spot exhibition invites visitors to experience the power of the sun to see how it can be converted into electricity. The exhibits had to be built to withstand the all weather conditions and fit into the existing design scheme.
“The Sun Spot provides a compelling approach to help everyone understand the potential of solar energy. From pedal power to human-sized sundials, this exhibit features more fun ways to expand the solar energy footprint at Frost Science to spark curiosity in the minds of young and old alike,” said Pam Rauch, vice president of external affairs and economic development at FPL. “More importantly, it helps everyone ‘lean into’ the learning curve of understanding solar.” *
