Located on the first floor of the Visitor & Administration Center, two interpretive touch screens engage visitors in a virtual tour of the building and surrounding landscapes.  Not only do the touch screens explain what a green roof is, for example, but they also provide real time energy data from the photovoltaic array.  The touch screens are translated into four languages; English, Chinese, Spanish and Korean. The interactive display was developed in collaboration with Fat Spaniel Technologies, Inc.

To view the touch screen program online, please use the link below.  Please note the links on the right hand side of the home page are inactive.  The same information can be found on the Garden's website.
