Dogs! A Science Tail is the latest exhibit happening inside the California Science Center. From now till January 5, 2020 you and the family will be able to learn what makes man’s best friend…simply the best!
We attended a media preview to get the scoop and sure enough, it’s our new favorite interactive exhibit! It’s educational and most importantly…it’s FUN. I love it when my kids are having a good time without realizing their learning something new.
What to Expect
Be prepared to spend about 90 minutes. It’s interactive and that means everyone’s gonna wanna touch & play! So don’t forget to bring a hand sanitizer.
The exhibit is organized into five areas, including:
Tail as Old as Time
- Become an archaeologist and dig up replica fossils and figure out who it belongs to.
- Analyze bones and DNA patterns.
- Watch a film on how dogs evolved from ancient wolves.
Dogs and Humans, Together Forever
- Interact with a virtual dog.
- Test your canine pop-culture knowledge with “Jeopawdy!”
- Explore the science behind the human/dog bond.
The Incredible Dog!
- Test your running pace against the top speeds of various dog breeds. (This was super fun…and exhausting!)
- Experience the dog’s sensory world by sniffing out hidden smells.
- Get inside a fabricated dog’s head to see and hear like a dog.
- Find out how dogs think and communicate with each other and with humans.
Caring for Dogs
- Learn the responsibilities of having a dog.
- Find out how to care for them.
- Practice positive reinforcement training techniques for dogs – by training a human!
- Get up close to see dogs’ amazing abilities through demonstrations.
- When demonstrations are not taking place, you can play inside the “dog park.”
