Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo’s most recent exhibit will undoubtedly aid it in holding the title of “world’s best zoo,” granted by TripAdvisor based on an algorithmic assimilation of millions of reviews for 275 major zoos worldwide. Nationally renowned for its leadership in animal conservation and research, today the Zoo includes several notable exhibits including the largest cat complex in North America, and the world’s largest nocturnal exhibit. Now, the Zoo’s new Alaskan Adventure is pushing the boundaries of interactive education with a 325 person splash ground incorporating species that the Zoo does not currently have, giving kids the opportunity to learn about animals seen near the Alaskan coastline. As emphasized by Zoo Director Dennis Pate, "children are going to be drawn to this because they're going to love to play in the water, but they're going to know what an orca is, a sea lion is, what a puffin is." In order to truly capture the beauty and realism of these creatures and their movements, the visionaries behind the exhibit wanted to make it so that it would appear as if the 75 bronze animals, created by Nebraska’s own Matthew Placzek, were dragging and interacting with the water just as they would in the ocean. For example, “when a humpback whale comes up out of the water, he drags a certain amount of water with him, and that certain amount rolls off his flippers.” This is one of the many effects the zoo wanted to simulate with computerized nozzles. While this was no easy task, with the help of Crystal’s versatile nozzles and our WATERlab design service, the finished product is nothing short of spectacular. With WATERlab’s simulation technology the designers were able to plug in different nozzles to the rendered landscape and mimic the finished product in a simulated environment. This freedom to realize the final vision before even beginning construction allowed for a trial and error process of determining how each effect would interact with the statues, allowing them to decide on realistic effects to match each animal’s unique movements. The brilliance of the exhibit doesn’t stop at the realistic movement of the water in relation to the animals, though – it also moves in sync with a series of noises programmed throughout the exhibit. Recorded sounds are played on a timed sequence from speakers tucked into the bushes, and the nozzles are programmed on the same schedule to react in a way that tells a story and brings the animals to life. For example, when the bear growls the 30 jumping salmon all try to swim away and this is portrayed with a number of quickened spouts of leaping water surrounding them. When the sea lions call out the rows of jets nearby react with a more intense effect than they are regularly programmed for. And of course, as the star of the show, the 18-foot humpback whale’s call is met with an enormous splash of water and powerful burst from his blowhole. The sounds of Alaskan animals like grizzlies growling, orcas singing and walruses bellowing are now combined with the sounds of shrieking children playing while they take part in a truly unique, and educational, Alaskan Adventure. Misting nozzles and the native Alaskan landscape surround this new area to truly allow Zoo guests to feel like they are in Alaska, and the beautiful bronze statues interacting realistically with the water effects and sounds transport you right to the coastline. "When people walk in they're going to get a scene of what the Alaskan coastline looks like and feels like. They're going to see a lot of water movement generated by the Alaskan animals here. They're going to get a real sense of scale of just how large some of these animals are" (Dennis Pate). http://www.crystalfountains.com

Title: Nebraska Waterway Pollution: A concentration of a Global Crisis Topic: Nebraska Waterway pollution and a solution through education in schools. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this speech is to bring attention to the continually worsening conditions of our waterways and natural water resources in the state of Nebraska while determining an educationally driven solution to this growing crisis. Thesis: Water pollution is not only a global crisis, but a Nebraska crisis as well. As the 6th worst state in the U.S. in regards to water and waterway pollution, Nebraska relies on its water resources for the continued success of its agricultural economy; not to mention natural drinking water. Due to all of the causes of this pollution, it is my belief that the only formidable way to combat this growing crisis is to start by educating students as early as the elementary level on ways that they, at their age, can determine solutions to this growing problem. Introduction: We continually hear about Global Warming and Climate change, but one area of environmental changes and issues that tends to be overlooked, is global water and water way pollution. Pollution as a whole, is a global issue, but pollution of our main and most crucial natural resource is more than just an issue, it’s a crisis. Water pollution doesn’t just affect us globally, but also locally and regionally here in Nebraska. As an agriculturally driven state economy, Nebraska relies on its water resources more than the majority of other states in the U.S. That being said, the continuing pollution of our waterways and the Ogallala Aquifer, needs dire attention.

The solution through Early childhood development and education A. Starting the education EARLY! Conserve and Preserve B. Lesson Plans in the Classroom 1. Connect lessons with students and parents C. Relating it to “US” as people Conclusion: Overall, water pollution is not an issue to be overlooked or forgotten. It is a crisis that not only affects us globally but here at home. Nebraska thrives on agriculture and our great need for water, not only for drinking and domestic use, but also for farming and livestock, forces this problem to the forefront of Nebraska environmental discussions. When looking for a solution to this problem, a lot has to change and happen naturally and on our end before positive changes can occur. However, one of the best ways to get ahead of this problem is to start educating about it in schools at an early elementary age level. I, as a hopeful future teacher, would hope that inclusion of Nebraska water pollution can be infused into educational lessons in school to help provide and determine possible solutions and outcomes.
