Satisfy your need for speed at the NightLife premiere of the Academy’s latest exhibit, Built for Speed, which explores what it takes for animals and boats to be fast in fluid. Take part in a Q&A with the designers behind the boats of ORACLE TEAM USA, the America’s Cup defending champions. Challenge a friend to a backyard sailing race using miniature boats, straws, and your lungs. Plus, learn about fast fish from the Academy’s aquarium staff, and see speedy squid specimens from the research collections. Jot down a pledge of how you’ll help protect the sea and then step into the Healthy Oceans Project photo booth to record it for posterity. Music in the Piazza and coral reef by Red Bull DJs J.Espinosa, Shortkut and King Most.
