Chabot Space and Science Center: Bill Nye's Climate Lab
Inspired and powered by the renewable energy of kids, Chabot Space and Science Center’s new permanent exhibition, Bill Nye’s Climate Lab, features Emmy-Award-winning Bill Nye the Climate Guy® as commander of the Clean Energy Space Station, and invites visitors on an urgent mission to thwart climate change.
Beginning with a view of planet Earth from space, visitors explore air, water and land galleries to discover how climate change affects Earth’s connected systems and how to use the sun, wind, land and water to generate clean energy. Climb aboard a hot-air balloon, imagine diving into the ocean in an underwater research vessel and learn how scientists decipher our planet’s climate history with samples of ancient ice, trees and mud.
The immersive, hands-on activities will boost climate literacy and demonstrate energy-saving strategies for daily life. Visitors will use Climate Scout ID cards to track their progress and collect “energy solutions” as they operate a wind turbine, take a bike ride with Bill Nye and design energy-efficient buildings. Free with general admission.
Chabot Space and Science Center is located at 10000 Skyline Blvd., in Oakland. For more information, call 510-336-7300 or visit ChabotSpace.org.
