LightHouse for the Blind Youth Program Presents: A Day at the Exploratorium

On Sunday, November 17, the LightHouse Youth Program will be heading over to the world famous Exploratorium for an afternoon of fun and exploration. We’ll begin our day by meeting at the LightHouse and taking the F-line to Pier 15 where we’ll have our bagged lunch by the bay before entering the Exploratorium.

The Exploratorium describes their museum as:

…a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker. For more than forty years, we’ve built creative, thought-provoking exhibits, tools, programs, and experiences that ignite curiosity, encourage exploration, and lead to profound learning.
