Young visitors participate in a Think-Tank lab at Birch Aquarium at Scripps, during which they made cartesian divers using recycled plastic bottles. This classic science experiment demonstrates the principle of buoyancy.
Join us as we dive deeper into the fascinating lives of ocean animals and other interesting natural phenomenon. Exciting demonstrations, live animals and fun activities will engage learners of all ages. Our experienced Explore-It guides will help answer questions and inspire meaningful connections.
Be a part of Think Tank, a new collaborative learning experience where guests of all ages can come together to explore our natural world. Sparks of curiosity and creativity will get minds buzzing, and hands moving, to build upon ideas and understanding through interactive "projects".
