We Are Data

Do you think of yourself as a data collector? Can you name all the kinds of data you collect?

At its simplest, data is information that is collected for use. Explore this large, often technical topic through a more personal lens in We Are Data. The exhibit asks us to think about how much of our day is spent collecting data, how these data collections make our lives easier, and how the kinds of data you collect make you unique.

Portal to Current Research

Wildfire
Learn about wildfire’s important role in the ecology of some forests. See how these natural processes and the smoke they produce are affecting Seattle as well as other areas. Read more here.

Tinker Tank

Test your hypotheses and create your own innovations in our hands-on tinkering space that offers daily engineering and design challenges. Read more here. Read more here.

VR Experiences

Try an awe-inspiring collection of immersive, virtual reality experiences you’ll have to see, feel and even smell (yes, smell) to believe. Read more here.

Living Exhibits

From Naked Mole Rats to Civilized Seeds, our collection of living exhibits allows guests to explore rare animals and plants and their amazing features. Read more here.

The Studio: Science in Action

We hear about data, but where does it come from, what does it look like, and what happens after it’s collected? Check out Science in Action created with the University of Washington’s Institute of Learning and Brain Sciences (I-LAB). Read more here.

Science On a Sphere

This astonishing piece of technology displays dynamic, animated images of the atmosphere, oceans and land on an illuminated sphere six ft in diameter. Read more here.

Tropical Butterfly House

Enjoy year-round sunshine and hundreds of butterflies from the tropics. With new butterflies released weekly, discover something new during each visit. Read more here.

Wellbody Academy

Discover how personal choices affect health and well being through inventions and activities that present the lifelong process of balancing exercise, diet, proper rest and hygiene. Read more here.

Naked Mole Rat Cam

Meet our Naked Mole Rat colony during your visit. Watch them exercise on their climbing ramp, rest in their sleeping chamber, and go about the tasks of cleaning and gathering food. Then keep up with their daily lives with our 24×7. Read more here.

Other Exhibits

Body Works

Test your reaction time. See how much energy you produce on the Calorie Bicycles. Play games in the Nutrition Cafe and other interactive exhibits. Body Works is all about you.

Just for Tots

An area for the smallest scientists! Experiment with water at the stream table and more.

Sonic Bloom

Just outside the Boeing IMAX Theater, Sonic Bloom is a solar-powered art installation created in collaboration with Seattle City Light. Sonic Bloom is accessible 24 hours a day, no ticket required.

Pollinator Garden

Look for local hummingbirds, butterflies, beetles, and bumblebees while learning about pollination. More than 50 species of Washington-native plants provide food and habitat for pollinators that visit Pacific Science Center’s grounds.

Civilized Seeds: A History of People and Plants

Meet plants that produce apples, hops, tea, spices, blue dye, aspirin, paper, and other useful products. Discover how people have chosen plant traits throughout history.

Puget Sound Model

Explore the science of northwest Washington’s largest and ecologically diverse estuary, the Puget Sound. See real tides and currents in action at the 100 sq. ft. scale model of the sound.

Science Playground

How does an electric motor work? What does a gyroscope do? Who wins the bubble race? Find the answers to these questions and more in the Science Playground.

Outdoor Exhibits

Spin a two-ton granite ball with your bare hands, play with water cannons or walk in the giant water wheel in Water Works. Nearby, ride the High Rail Bicycle 15 ft. above the ground — on a rail only one inch wide! Open seasonally, weather permitting.

Insect Village

Giant robotic insects, interactive exhibits and live animal displays give you a close-up look at the world of insects and other arthropods.

Saltwater Tide Pool

See and touch live Puget Sound animals in the saltwater tide pool.

Dinosaurs: A Journey Through Time

Travel back to in time to meet dinosaurs from the Mesozoic Era, stand in the footprint of a giant duckbill dinosaur and take control of the Pneumoferrosaurus to see how animatronic dinosaurs work.
