Don’t miss out on Dogs! A Science Tail at the California Science Center…because its sadly coming to an end, January 5, 2020. Since the kids will be on Winter Break, this makes the perfect time to visit with the family!
We attended a media preview earlier this year 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.
Dogs! A Science Tail” at California Science Center ends January 5, 2020
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.”
You can see more from our time at the exhibit on Instagram.
For some extra furry time, Superpower Dogs in IMAX is a now playing and its a great way to end your visit!
