EXTRA, the marketplace for scientific touring exhibitions.
The exhibition deals with WATER in all of its states and its universal nature; everybody’s water and water for everyone. It is organised into three separate parts:
· Water & Life: water is essential to life, the living, species and environments. This part
focuses more on scientific (the physics/chemistry of water) and naturalistic (water in the
· Water & Man: forever and everywhere, Man has established himself next to water and
maintained strong links with this natural resource. This part focuses more on technical
(engineering, hydraulics, energy, etc.) and symbolic (the cultural role of water) aspects.
· Water & Societies: water is an available but fragile resource which is part of everybody’s
shared heritage. This part focuses both on the more personal (on the level of each individual) and more planetary (on the level of humankind) aspects.
The exhibition is made up of modules so it can be adapted to all types of venues and can be presented in spaces of between 150 m² and 250 m², either grouped together as one single display or split between two or three separate spaces.
This is an interactive exhibition which invites the public on a walk of discovery, following the current alongside a diverse range of materials and tools offering models, casts, specimens, audiovisual aids and interactive experiences, etc.
“Eau, l’expo” is an exhibition aimed at the general public, but is particularly well-adapted to young people, school children and families.
