Gold Rush

It is in our human nature to have an obsession with GOLD. The value we have put on it captivates, motivates and drives people to do incredible things.

Take a step back in time and experience what life was like for many individuals who risked everything to try and make it rich quick once the news spread that gold was found and how the lure of gold changed and shaped California.

Infinity Cube

Apr 7 - ongoing

Birch Aquarium at Scripps is launching Infinity Cube, a new, immersive art installation that explores bioluminescence by combining glowing creatures with world-class science, high-tech projection and an original soundscape. Step into an 8-foot cube and become surrounded by video projections of single-celled marine organisms - called dinoflagellates - reacting to various stimulants such as the human heartbeat, music, water flow, and air pressure. Through activities and interpretation accompanying the installation, guests will have opportunities to learn more about the phenomenon of living light and how marine species use it for camouflage, protection and communication.
