International Science Center and Science Museum Day

by Daniel Verderame

As part of International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD), a global event illustrating the impact and reach of all the world’s science centers and science museums, Bishop Museum’s science educators welcome you to join them in our Science Adventure Center and Planetarium, Sunday, November 10! Our 16,500 square-foot science facility showcases immersive and interactive exhibits – with an emphasis on Hawai‘i’s environment. The Science Adventure Center was built specifically to focus on the Science of Hawaiʻi, how the islands were formed, the plants, and animals of this land, and how invasive species have changed the native landscape.

With sustainability in mind for ISCSMD, our Science Adventure Center offers daily programs such as “Twilight Zone: Life in the Deep Sea.” Learn about the ocean’s Twilight Zone and the amazing deep-sea discoveries and mysterious creatures that inhabit this region. Stop by J. Watumull Planetarium, the first planetarium in Polynesia,for Wayfinders: Waves, Winds, and Stars. Learn about traditional non-instrument, celestial navigation in Hawai‘i and the Pacific and how Polynesian Voyaging Society promotes sustainability on their modern day voyages. Stick around the planetarium lobby and discover “Science on a Sphere” to learn about how NOAA and NASA satellites gather data about Earth. View models of real-time weather patterns, ocean temperatures, animal migrations and more! We hope you can join us for an exciting, science-filled, day of learning and fun for the whole family!
