Come May, the Academy of Natural Sciences will launch a brand new exhibit, Fore! The Planet: A Putt-to-learn Adventure. Scheduled to open on May 21st, the interactive exhibit invites guests to putt their way through 18 holes of indoor mini golf that will test their knowledge of science and the environment. That’s right. Mini golf in the museum.
The questions and features in the exhibit were created by the Academy scientists, based on their research. From dinosaur extinction to bat sonar, pollution to recycling, there’s a lot to learn about.
Interesting fact, unlike the other traveling exhibits that pop up at the Academy, this one was created by the museum, and has already gone to several other places, “including the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria, Canada, Omaha Children’s Museum in Nebraska, San Diego Museum of Natural History in California, and the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, WA.”
