 Man the Producer
 Resources For Man

Earth's resources are as useful to man as he is able to make good use of them. The most important resource is, therefore, man himself.

Matter and energy are one and the same. The chimical aspect of our resources is illustrated by a three-dimensional periodic table containing true samples of all elements on earth and wall structures showing the quantitative composition of man, plants and earth, all built with 6 inches acrylic cubes.

A multi-screen audio-visual presentation explaining the exploitation by man of earth resources is amplified by exhibits on uses of materials and on modern energy conversion process. The inefficiency of traditional conversion processes involving chimical, thermal and nuclear energy sources, and the consequent need for processes permitting direct conversion to electrical power, are stressed.

Man's involvement in the discovery, extraction and use of resources is demonstrated in pictorial and model form.

In the final area, the increasing importance of energy and its correlation with man's standard of living is treated pictorially and statistically.
