Last month marked the debut of the Exploratorium Market Days, a series of all-ages programming that unites scientists, artists and educators in presenting new ideas at the Exploratorium’s public plaza at Pier 15. The Market Days take place on the third Saturday of each month through October.
This month’s theme is “Trashformation”, which will be explored on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will be invited to consider the creative potential of trash, finding inspiration with an array of amazing gadgets, sculptures and innovations designed to reduce, reuse and upcycle. It’s being billed as “a firsthand look at the innovative ways engineers, artists and creative thinkers in the Bay Area are re-using materials and creating new technologies to build a more sustainable future.”
Next month’s theme is “Savoir Faire”, an investigation of the rich world of seasonings. Visitors will be able to learn more about herbs, trace their geographic origins, and take home special seasonings recipes.
Regular admission to the museum is $25 for adults. All events will take place in the free public plaza outside of Pier 15.
