Water is Life

This Putnam Museum’s exhibit explores the various properties of water and its importance to life on Earth. You’ll learn about water and the role of water in different aspects of everyday life.

Understanding Water on an Elemental Level

Water is a unique molecule that has many unique properties, such as its ability to dissolve a wide variety of substances, transmit sound, and withstand very high heat. These properties are on display in interactive displays throughout the exhibit.

Visitors also learn about the role of water in the water cycle, the different forms of water (such as ice and vapor), and the ways in which water is essential for the survival of living organisms.

Managing Water Can Be a Challenge

Water: Molecules in Motion explores the challenges and opportunities associated with water management. The exhibit includes information about water scarcity, pollution, and climate change, as well as examples of successful water conservation and management strategies.

By learning about these issues, visitors can gain a better understanding of the need for responsible water use and the ways in which they can contribute to sustainable water management.
