  • Lava Lamps: Guests will explore the dangers of ocean acidification in this activity where pH will determine the color of a Lava Lamp.
  • Cartesian Divers: Rising sea levels affect pressure underwater and how sea life can survive in their environment as will be demonstrated in this Cartesian Divers activity.
  • Rainbow Rice Sensory Bin: To celebrate Concert of Colors, early learners will enjoy this neon sensory bin to explore the world of touch and light.
  • Build the Change: Put your imagination skills to the test in this LEGO brick building challenge focused on finding sustainable solutions to environmental issues.
