Science + You
Science + You opens at the Bay Area Discovery Museum on Saturday, September 21, 2019.
All children are scientists, and in BADM’s new traveling exhibit, Science + You, they’ll be able to look and act the part! In Science + You, children and their families will explore a replica laboratory, where different stations and experiments empower them to make important connections between science and wellness.
Tuesday-Friday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m.* - 5 p.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
*Member Hour: Saturdays, 9-10 a.m.
Upon entering the exhibit, children wash their hands, wipe their feet, and even walk through a pretend shower before donning their white lab coat! The exhibit features a variety of interactive activities, where visitors can get hands-on with the machinery, processes, and technology that professional scientists use in laboratories every day!
- In the Mixing and Separating Test Lab visitors can manually separate liquids and solids, and will explore how different types of real lab equipment functions to perform this task.
- The Magnification Area features specialized equipment that magnifies objects on a large video screen, so visitors can get an up-close look at an array of natural and man-made items.
- In the Test Kitchen, visitors will make “healthy soup” from a variety of ingredients that represent the five food groups, so visitors can explore the importance of a balanced diet in a fun, interactive way.
Come explore these fun stations and many more at Science + You!
This exhibit is open September 24, 2019 - January 5, 2020.
Science + You has been sponsored by the AbbVie Foundation
