The California Academy of Sciences is a multifaceted scientific institution committed to leading-edge research, to educational outreach, and to finding new and innovative ways to engage and inspire the public.
The Academy’s mission—to explore, explain and sustain life—extends to all corners of the institution; from a research expedition in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, to a teacher-training program in a California classroom, to an interactive game on the museum exhibit floor.
It’s as if the new Academy brings the whole universe under one roof – an aquarium, a planetarium, a natural history museum and more! The 412,000 square foot structure is not only physically impressive, but it just may be the greenest museum on the planet, with a 2 ½ acre Living Roof, an expansive solar canopy, an extensive water reclamation system, and walls insulated with recycled blue jeans.
The deepest coral reef exhibit in the world, a 4-story tropical rainforest, a towering T-Rex skeleton, a colony of African penguins, a fully-immersive digital screen by which to fly to the farthest reaches of the Universe: These are just a handful of the many exciting venues, exhibits and animals found within the new Academy.
The Academy was founded in 1853 to conduct natural science research. Today, the Academy’s Institute for Biodiversity Science and Sustainability continues to discover, document and share knowledge of the natural world.
The Institute supports world-class scientists, researchers, fellows, and graduate students in 12 fields of study. Through expeditions around the globe and investigations in the lab, they strive to understand the evolution and interconnectedness of life and guide critical conservation decisions. It’s their collective effort that is pushing the scientific envelope, informing Academy exhibits and programs, and helping citizens here and abroad to be sustainable stewards of Earth’s biodiversity.
Each year, the Academy’s accredited teachers, highly-trained docents and scientists share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the natural sciences with tens of thousands of children, teens, and life-long learners.
The Academy runs workshops for teachers, creates classroom materials, and hosts school field trips. It also fosters learning for the general public by providing a wide range of museum tours, daily programs, events, and lectures.
