Harnessing Their Energy

The kids and I got charged up about the future of energy at last week. Boundless Energy at the Scripps Birch Aquarium is an interactive exhibit that celebrates ways we can use natural forces to power our world. It also lets children harness their own energy to power the reusable energy stations on display.

Of course, in addition to Boundless Energy, the aquarium is a wonderful place to visit with sea creatures of all sorts including sharks, starfish, seahorses, sea urchins and more. There really is something to capture the attention of any age child. We all really enjoyed the different varieties of sea dragons we met…

September 20th is the last day to celebrate the Birch Aquarium’s 20th anniversary with 1/2 priced admission, and next month kids go free to the aquarium all month long with a paying adult. But I’m excited to be able to give one lucky playgroup 12 free tickets to visit anytime.

If you have kids whose energy needs to be harnessed, take a trip to this San Diego treasure. To enter to win, simply reply below with the name of your playgroup and age range of the kiddos. One entry will be randomly selected this weekend!
