Science-related exhibits ignite and foster family-orientated, hands-on curiosity about nature and cosmos through a variety of on-site and traveling programs. The current special exhibit, "Beyond the Table: A Look at Agriculture and You," details food's journey from farm to plate while exploring conventional, local, organic, and sustainable agricultural methods in California. The exhibit runs through Feb. 24.
Explorit Science Center
A ball python, bearded dragons, and three types of cockroaches have made their homes at Explorit Science Center, educating guests in an exhibit dubbed the Animal Alcove. Since 1982, the center has fostered curiosity about science and nature with hands-on exhibits like this, rather than by feeding children dry textbooks or encouraging them merely to imagine how loud the sound is when trees walk. About 55,000 people visit the center each year, enhancing their intellectual development at the miniature zoo and rotating exhibits that explore the role of science in both commonplace and whimsical natural phenomena. One popular exhibit, for example, took visitors through the local agricultural process, the interconnections between agriculture and weather, and each meal’s journey from the farm to the plate. Visitors can discover further factoids at Explorit's science lecture series, and youngsters can enroll in the center’s science-themed summer camps.
