Traveling Exhibit – Water’s Extreme Journey

1900 N. Chaparral St.
June 1 @ 10:00 am - August 25 @ 6:00 pm CDT


Become a Raindrop, Change Your World

Water’s Extreme Journey is more than an exhibition.

Developed with world-renowned marine life artist Wyland, Water’s Extreme Journey takes you on an exciting and important quest for clean water. You’ll experience the watershed as a water drop, exploring first-hand the science behind the water cycle. But it’s not all wet and wild – through powerful interactives and local messaging, you will realize that even your daily decisions can immediately improve the watershed in your own backyard.




Water’s Extreme Journey has you transform into a drop of water entering a watershed, an area of land where water drains and collects into a shared reservoir. You will discover that a watershed can be right in your own neighborhood, or as big as the Rocky Mountain region! To explore the exhibition watershed, you must voyage through rivers, lakes, wetlands, and even your homes, eventually reaching the healthy ocean. Sound easy? Water drops face many hurdles as they interact with humans. Does the farm they encounter use pesticides? Did someone get messy changing their oil, or flush prescription drugs down the toilet? Clean choices keep our drops healthy and moving toward a clean ocean. Dirty choices send our drops down the urban storm drain to the unhealthy ocean, where they evaporate, condensate, and precipitate for another try.


Event Details:

The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is thrilled to announce its latest immersive experience: Water’s Extreme Journey.

Exhibit Highlights:

Why Water?

Water is among the hottest conservation topics in the news today, and Americans rank water pollution as the number one environmental concern facing the country. Water’s Extreme Journey is a front-line effort to empower millions of people with the knowledge to create a positive, immediate impact through action.

Clean water in your own backyard.

Water’s Extreme Journey presents opportunities for local messaging through programming: The exhibition is also translated into Spanish to help reach more visitors.

Local Watershed Experience

Shed some light on your watershed! An interactive model and bird’s-eye view of a small town teaches visitors to explore the various ways that everyday actions impact our communal waters. Identify streets and buildings as community landmarks, bring regional water experts to talk about how local pollutants affect the watershed, and point to local actions within the neighborhood.

Water’s Core Curriculum

Water’s Extreme Journey comes with a fully developed water curriculum that adheres to National Art and Science Education Standards. Each lesson includes an activity and is designed to be flexible and adapted for grades K-8. Students will experiment with and study the different properties of water, conduct scientific experiments, explore ecosystems, and learn to become stewards of the environment. This curriculum is appropriate for schools, and formal and informal learning institutions.

Everyone likes to get in on the action, which is why we at Minotaur Mazes build each exhibition so that visitors can interact with and impact their environment. It helps visitors retain and remember information. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!

Zip Slide

You’re a raindrop. Time to zip toward a mountain stream and drop into the watershed!

Water Cycle Puzzle

If you were a raindrop, where might you go? Complete the water cycle puzzle and send water on a journey into a whale, onto a leaf, or down a drain. It’s up to you!


Image isn’t everything, but it sure can help you think about how you’d look like a water drop! Get into character for your journey through the maze.

Dodge Pollution

Get ready, raindrops… humans ahead! Five spinning impact wheels simulate interaction between humans and water in five categories: litter, toxins, agriculture, development, and seafood. Get through all impact points and stay clean to reach the healthy ocean. Don’t worry if you get dirty – you can go through the maze again and make cleaner choices.


Learn new ideas about how we think about water through creative media, showing the power of every individual to make a significant difference.

Recycle vs. Trash

Try this heavy lifting – the average U.S. citizen throws out 28 pounds of garbage each week! But after you recycle and compost, you may feel a big difference…

How Much Water?

Nearly 70% of the earth is covered by water and less than 1% is available for drinking. How can this be true? Investigate answers by comparing all the types of water on Earth.

Clean Water Commitment

Each of us has the power to make a significant difference – it just takes a few simple decisions. Visitors are offered a variety of lifestyle changes to help keep water clean. The cumulative impact of each pledge is recorded and shown, clearly demonstrating the positive impact a single individual can have on the environment.

Get Filtered!

Take a trip through the Slow Zone to get cleaned up! This wetland experience demonstrates how grass and other plants naturally filter water.

Urban River/ Storm Drain

Oh no! Gross! You got dirty and are headed for the Un-Healthy Ocean. But don’t despair – you’re not alone, and there’s a lot you can do together to clean up your act. Look around for other raindrops to help!

Home Sweet Home

Look closely at a snapshot of ‘home’ and see if you can identify where water is getting dirty or being wasted. There are 10 things that can be changed to save water and keep it clean. See if you can identify them all!

The Dirty Dozen

Learn about the top twelve pollutants that are invading our oceans and discover what you can do to make a difference. This flip door game reinforces lessons learned in the maze and gives visitors the power to act!

Animal Identification

Visit animal habitats in the maze and see if you can identify each inhabitant. You may be surprised!

Wildlife Wheel

Think you’ve conquered the maze? A spin of the wheel sends you on another adventure in search of certain hidden animal information and reveals how important clean water is for their survival.


Snap a great take-home picture of you and your family ‘swimming’ with the dolphins!
