Case Study:

Extending Education

The Client: The Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) is a regional water management agency tasked with regulating Texas’ Edwards Aquifer. The aquifer provides water to more than 2 million people across 8,000 square miles of southern Texas. The goal of the Edwards Aquifer Authority EAA) is to manage, enhance, and protect the aquifer for generations to come. 

"We told them the story that we wanted to tell, we told them who we are, what we do, and why we do it and they came up with concepts that would help us explain those stories."

The Need

To help preserve the aquifer, the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) employs a team of educators to help further their mission. From classrooms to community events, the educators covered hundreds of miles of southern Texas annually to offer an immersive and impactful learning experience. Despite their best efforts, the team lacked a more formal setting to fully showcase the aquifer’s importance. As a result, the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) Education Outreach Center (EOC) was created to meet the needs of future generations. 

"We felt listened to, we felt heard, we enjoyed working hand-in-hand with the team and they were just so professional."

The Solution

Exhibit Concepts was chosen to help the Education Outreach Center (EOC) become a next generation learning center for water resource management. As part of the Edwards Aquifer Authority, the Education Outreach Center (EOC) serves as a key educational component for those living in the region. Nestled outside of San Antonio, on the EAA Recharge Zone, Exhibit Concepts helped create several engagements designed to ignite curiosity and instill a passion for environmental preservation. The engagements include a cave theater, an endangered species aquarium, an interactive LED globe, and a cloud caster. The immersive engagements, custom-fabricated by Exhibit Concepts, are coupled with colorful informational graphics that touch on the history of the EAA, its role in maintaining life in Texas, and the environmental challenges the aquifer faces today.
