Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to go on a preview visit to the new Exploratorium here in San Francisco. The museum is relocating from its long-time home at the Palace of Fine Arts to a state of the art building on Pier 15 in San Francisco. While the museum will be keeping long-time favorites, it will also include many new interactive exhibits and activities. One of the things I’m most excited about is the Exploratorium’s Tinkering Studio. From creating marble roller coasters to dissecting toys to designing air powered vehicles, the tinkering studio is dedicated to helping visitors explore and inquire through projects and activities that integrate science, technology, engineering, math, and art!
The pictures below highlight some of I what I think are the coolest and most intriguing features and exhibits in the new Exploratorium. Check it out when it opens tomorrow, April 17, 2013!
