Come research the planet at the Planetary Research Station, where science matters at Discovery Cube Los Angeles!
We are lovers of science in our house. When our family visits the Discovery Cube Los Angeles, I know that my child is going to get exciting, hands-on learning at a museum that’s packed with fun exhibits. They kids can run around and touch everything, do experiments, watch informative videos and participate in really cool activities!
Today I’m going to focus on one exhibit in particular. Planetary Research Station is a great place to sit down, relax and learn a little something about how to help our planet. The display is a huge globe that is suspended in mid-air. This unique view of earth, is sure to catch your child’s eye. Take a journey of our world at this interactive attraction, to learn about changing weather patterns, air quality, climate change, and what we can all do to make a difference.
Global warming is a real thing and it’s important to talk to our kids about it. Not just that it’s an issue, but how they can do their part to help out our world. If everyone around the world did a little bit extra to conserve resources and keep our air clean, it would add up to a giant effect. It’s nice to know that the Discovery Cube is doing their part to educate the public, especially children on what they can do to help the earth.
There are many simple ways to encourage your family to make conservation a way of life.
Saving electricity – Turn the lights off when you leave the room.
Water conservation – Turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth and take shorter showers.
Recycling – Sort out your trash and recycle into bins labeled, plastic, paper and recycle.
Ride sharing – Carpool to school, the park or even to your next trip to The Cube. Take your bike when doing local errands around your community.
Get the conversation started in your home!
So make sure that next time you visit Discovery Cube, you stop in at the Planetary Research Station. Spark the curiosity within your children and turn them into crusaders for our planet! Our future earth will thank you!
