The Exploratorium: Pier 15, San Francisco, CA

Inspiring Explorers



Bruce Damonte

Founded by particle physicist Frank Oppenheimer in 1969, San Francisco’s Exploratorium seeks to change the way the world learns with a focus on self-teaching and exploration. The hands-on science museum features exhibits such as a wind table where visitors can create flying objects; a fog bridge, which creates the mist that frequently envelops the Bay area; and an “Algae Chandelier” where visitors can pump oxygen to nourish tanks of colored algae, also known as phytoplankton.
