Soil Superheroes introduces visitors to the league of superheroes who live beneath our feet and make life on earth possible. Colourfully illustrated characters speak directly to visitors, making the science of soil fun and relevant. Earthworms, sand particles, decomposing poop, and many other superheroes explain how their superpowers not only provide humans with food and medicine, but also clean the water we drink and help us fight climate change. Developed by the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, this 1000-1400 sq ft interactive exhibition makes the difference between healthy and unhealthy soil much clearer than mud! It also includes a discovery cart rich in hands-on activities that allow visitors to become soil superhero sidekicks.
The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum has prepared a variety of educational resources to extend the exhibition experience. These resources explore how soil health impacts our everyday lives. Click on the button below to check out at-home activities and educational activity kits for classrooms.
