April 2023–January 2024

Ocean acidification (Nature Lab):
The main cause of global warming is excess carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. When CO2 is absorbed into sea water, the water becomes more acidic and harms marine life. Researcher David Kwabi and his team are seeking ways to re-capture CO2 from seawater to improve the health of our oceans. Visit the Investigate: Nature Lab to learn more about the problem of ocean acidification and solutions the Kwabi Lab is developing.

Visualizing viruses (Micro Worlds Lab):
How much do you know about viruses and how they spread? Test your knowledge with a quiz that covers common misconceptions about viral transmission in this display in the Investigate: Micro Worlds Lab. Researchers Susan Gelman and David Menendez study how children (and adults) think about viruses: what they look like, how they move from person to person, and how they make you sick. Watch videos of them talking about their work, try your hand at the quiz, or draw your own virus!
