UW Spotlights Husky Research at Pacific Science Center

Purple-and-gold fun combined with hands-on science experiments and interactive activities for the whole family are the focal points of Husky Research at the Pacific Science Center. Race cars solely powered by the sun (you’ll build them), jump and leap to create an earthquake (you’ll measure its strength on a seismograph), meticulously examine millions of plant microbes (you’ll scope out that, too).

At the Husky Research Spotlight, University of Washington will be displaying newly discovered research in an interactive exhibit for all ages. Featuring quest appearances and an array of activities, this will certainly be a Paws-On Experience.

Meet UW scientists and researchers and explore the fascinating forward-thinking projects produced in our own backyard. Together, Pacific Science Center and UW have created three days of engaging and entertaining programs and activities related to their groundbreaking work in fields ranging from engineering to medicine to meteorology and geology.

Join these two Seattle institutions strongly committed to providing engaging educational opportunities for the public to interact with science and research.
Along with hands-on activities, Husky spirit will ignite with special guest appearances by Harry the Husky, the Husky Marching Band and Cheer Team and of course, the famed UW mascot Dubs.

This special event is included with price of general admission and is FREE for Pacific Science Center members. To further celebrate Husky Weekend, University of Washington alumni, students, faculty and staff will all enjoy a 20% discount off general admission.

The Pacific Science Center is located at 200 Second Avenue North in Lower Queen Anne, Seattle.

The exhibit will take place Friday, April 5: 10 am – 2 pm, Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7: 10 am – 6 pm
