WonderWorks Syracuse Adds New Earthquake Exhibit

WonderWorks Syracuse has another new addition.

Requested by local educators, Good Vibrations opened in August, and explores the importance of the Tuckaleechee Caverns. The caverns, which are located in Townsend, Tennessee, are able detect earthquakes and seismic activity around the world.

“We love that teachers are the inspiration behind this new exhibit,” said Jon Cascella, general manager for WonderWorks Syracuse, in a press release. “We are happy to provide people with a way to learn more science, and it’s great to be able to share the important work done at the Tuckaleechee Caverns.”
