When the Earth Shakes at The Children’s Museum
February 19 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Children’s Museum introduces our new exhibit on December 12th! When the Earth Shakes – where both children and adults can delve into the science of earthquakes, tectonic plates, and tsunamis, and find out what earthquake engineers are doing to make our world safer.
Immerse yourself in interactive earthquake exhibits. See the fast-paced videos of engineers working to make our world safer by using amazing tools and technology to test and improve building techniques and materials. Jump up and down on a platform, changing how hard you jump and match the seismogram from a historic earthquake! Explore the science of tsunami waves. Build a structure, and then make waves crash on a beach. Did your structure hold up? Spin the dial, replay the impact in slow-motion, then improve your design.
Bring your family to The Children’s Museum and experience the science of earthquakes and earthquake engineering!
