Join us on our Expedition to the Bowers Museum! Located in Orange County, this museum includes 100,000 objects from the areas of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, Native American art, and the art of Asia, Africa, and Oceania. In addition to their main campus, the Bowers Museum also includes a children’s museum, Kidseum. During our time at the Kidseum we will be traveling through two exhibits: Future Park: Art + Technology and Endurance: The Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley. During Future Park our scientists will explore the digital and technological side of art by creating complicated courses projected on the floor that move and change when touched, by rolling soft, large (as tall as our scientists!) orbs of light that change color and sound when moved across an orchestral floor, and by using blocks on a table that code to become digital thoroughfares for all modes of transportation Exploring Endurance, our scientists will experience the incredible story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition into uncharted territories. Following along with their own expedition journal, the girls will document their own Antarctic expedition as if they were experiencing it in 1914. Creativity abounds when our young scientists work and learn together in these interactive spaces!
