A core principle at Brightworks is to get kids out in the world almost as much as they are in school – the world has so much to show and teach us, and we greatly benefit from being in an accessible city with so many resources within our reach. Last week, there was a band missing every day as they found arc-related experiences all over town.
On Monday the Megaband visited the California Academy of Science to see a couple of planetarium shows about the earliest light from the creation of the universe, dark matter, and antimatter. The students’ curiosities were sparked after listening to the third segment of RadioLab’s show on symmetry and mirrors, called “Nothing’s the Antimatter.”
On Tuesday, the Elephants ventured out to the Exploratorium to check out the mirror exhibits there.
Wednesday found the Hummingbirds in Glen Canyon Park, their usual weekly field trip to explore the nearby wild in the city.
On Thursday, the Banditos went with the Hummingbirds to the Mirror Maze at Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Banditos then met the Hawks at the Exploratorium for their own scavenger hunt around the museum.
