How do insects exchange information? What does a conversation between plants look like? Why are shortwave radios ideal over long distances?

When it comes to communication, it’s both what you say, and how you say it. Find out how blue whales, satin bowerbirds, and other species get their points across, and consider the effects of mixing languages to impart ideas. Learn how active listening can lead to conflict resolution, see your actions speak in light and music, and watch meanings shift from one code to another. Grab dinner and drinks by the Bay, explore exhibits, and crawl through our pitch-black Tactile Dome.
