Science + You
Science + You is open at the Bay Area Discovery Museum through January 5, 2020.
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.
The museum is closed through March 31, based on the recommendation by the California Department of Public Health.
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
