Pump It UP!: A highly interactive experience about Pumpers & Tankers
 
 
 

The exhibit "Pump it UP!” tells the story of how water gets to a fire and how it is pumped, both today and yesteryear. Using innovative hands on interactives that explore STEAM concepts, the exhibit educates visitors about the technology that makes firefighting possible.

This exhibit benefits the community by immersing visitors in STEAM concepts that make firefighting possible. The understanding obtained from this exhibit will inspire our younger visitors to explore careers in STEAM area. Many firefighters have also commented that they were fascinated to see the science behind the technology they use. To our knowledge, there is no exhibit that addresses this particular subject (pumping water for firefighting) anywhere, making the exhibit a unique accomplishment. 
 
This exhibit uses STEAM concepts to explain how different pumps have worked through the years and then invites visitors to operate the pumps. All of these interactives are tied together through the theme of water and how it gets to a fire scene. In addition, the history of the tanker truck itself is explained and a wall of water jugs visually helps visitors realize just how many gallons of water a tanker can hold. 

 
 
 
 This exhibit has been made possible, in part, by the generous support of:
