Paleo FBI

Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 21, 2019

Do you “dig” paleontology? Ever wonder how fossils are formed and found? Then join the Fossil Bureau of Investigation (FBI) where we’ll learn and work like real scientists. We’ll travel back in time to the age of dinosaurs as we unlock Fossil Mysteries and take a look at local discoveries uncovered by the museum’s own Paleontology Department. We’ll train like agents, hold a press conference, and make art projects about our discoveries.

Rock On!

Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28, 2019

Discover the splendor and science that exists right under your feet. San Diego is one of the most famous gem-producing regions in the world, but where do these minerals come from and how are they formed? We will answer these questions and more as we explore the dynamic forces continually changing the earth. Build a volcano and create a rock and mineral collection. We’ll make crafts, perform experiments, and visit our new exhibition Hidden Gems.

The Science of Flight

Monday, August 12 through Friday, August 16, 2019

Up, up, and away! We have been fascinated with flight for thousands of years. From dinosaurs and birds to some unexpected gliders, we’ll investigate the science of flight. What lessons have we learned from our feathered friends that have led humans to take to the skies? Through visits to the Museum’s exhibitions, the San Diego Zoo, and the San Diego Air & Space Museum, we will investigate this fascination. Join us as we take off for some plane old fun!
