Exploratorium Science Snackbook
Since the museum of science, art and human perception opened in San Francisco in 1969, teachers from the Bay Area have brought their classes on field trips to the Exploratorium. This science "snackbook" takes the exhibits to the kids.

For three years, nearly one hundred teachers worked with staff members to create scaled-down versions of Exploratorium exhibits. The results were dozens of exciting "Snacks" --- miniature science exhibits that teachers could make using common, inexpensive, easily available materials. By using Snacks in their classrooms, teachers can climb out of the textbooks and join their students in discovering science for themselves.
