LEAP Lab: Animals’ Amazing Senses
Registration recommended! You’ll be the first to learn of event details or if the location or date changes due to inclement weather.
How can dogs save endangered killer whales? And how do fish protect your drinking water?
Some animals do incredible jobs that help humans—everything from preventing wildfires to predicting earthquakes. Learn how animals use their super senses to tackle real-world human problems and try an activity to test out your own sensory systems, with science journalists Christina Couch and Cara Giaimo, authors of Detector Dogs, Dynamite Dolphins, and More Animals with Super Sensory Powers.
Free copies of Detector Dogs will be distributed at the event, while supplies last. Please choose “Free Ticket + Book” to reserve your copy, limited to one per household.
All ages are welcome. All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Responsible adults, please keep a close eye on your kids.
