Museums / Turn in your Sunday morning cartoons for the coolest field trip all month: Science Alive! Family Sunday.
Bishop Museum’s Great Lawn opens up to scientists from many fields–entomology, ichthyology, invertebrate zoology, whatever-your-jam-ology–to engage budding Einsteins of all ages in a day of scientific experimentation and discovery. Spread your wings with bird-banding demos. Prepare your own specimens for revealing microscopy. Extract the DNA of a fruit and savor its cellular biology.
More than 30 science and environmental community organizations including The Hawaii Wildlife Center, NOAA National Weather Service, RevoluSun and UH Center for Microbial Oceanograpy will shed light on their latest projects and initiatives.
You’re also granted entry to all of Bishop Museum’s permanent collections, and you can get your lab coat dirty in the current Xtreme Bugs exhibit faster than you can say, “Honey, I shrunk the kids.”
You may or may not unlock the secrets to a new species, but it’s a day guaranteed to cure your boredom.
