Take part in this once-a-year field trip opportunity!
At 10:30am, interact with our Cantonese-speaking educators and Academy biologists during our live penguin feeding to answer your questions.
“企鵝能游多快?” What else would you like to know? Join us!
Head downstairs to our Steinhart Aquarium for a presentation at 11:30am, as Cantonese-speaking educators explore our Philippine Coral Reef tank with our Academy divers.
Then roam through the museum and discover the mysteries of our natural world with other Chinese-speaking experts.
Please note that any presentations in the Planetarium on this visit date will be presented in English, as our Chinese-speaking staff and volunteers will be working within the rest of the museum exhibits.
