GREENSBORO, N.C. — Many of us like to sit and ponder what our pets are thinking. Especially when our furry friends get the "zoomies".
Well, new technology might bring us closer to knowing why cats and dogs do the things they do.
The Greensboro Science Center's new traveling exhibit is going to offer a unique opportunity for a limited time, giving us a closer look.
It's called Cats & Dogs.
It's an interactive and sensory experience that takes you on a journey through the life of canines and felines. It's a space where people can put themselves in their place to understand them better.
It's almost like you're switching lives to see what it's like.
The design comes from La Cite in Paris.
The exhibit is designed to take visitors on an array of fun using colors, and materials such as selected furnishings, different science, and specific environments.
In Their Skin
This is a simulation where visitors can compare their physical skills, such as speed, agility, and capacity to jump. People will be able to discover the different ranges of canine and feline body shapes and types, and observe their characteristics.
In Their Heads
What are they thinking? What do they dream about?
This is where visitors get plunged into a space decorated to put them on a level with the cats and dogs. People are invited to look, listen and feel like a dog or cat, with unusual immersive experiments while understanding how they communicate, interpret their emotions, and figure out their behavior.
In Our Society
Dogs and cats fill our homes, our streets, and even our culture. This section will show visitors the nature of our relationship with these animals over time, and the important role they play in our society today.
Cats & Dogs will run from December 1, 2022 - May 7, 2023. GSC members can enjoy a special sneak peek on Dec. 1 from 9 a.m. - noon.
The exhibit opens to the public at noon on Dec.1. Admission to Cats & Dogs is included with a general admission ticket or membership.
