Whether long-distance swimmers like the bluefin tuna or gold-medal sprinters like the shortfin mako shark, fish are designed to be the world's greatest swimmers! Go hands-on to investigate how and why different fish have different shapes and speeds. Join us as we observe different fish in our new exhibit, Ocean Wonders: Sharks!, design our own fish shapes, and use scientific tools to assess their speed in the water.
