They learn first-hand about scientific concepts that include fluid dynamics, physics, oscillation and vibration. CuriOdyssey’s rescued wild animals connect kids with the natural world, inspiring interest in nature and conservation. Daily otter and bobcat feedings and animal presentations by professional animal keepers thrill kids and their families with the science of animal survival and wildlife rescue stories.
