When San Francisco hosts the America’s Cup races this summer, the boats won’t be the only speed demons on display. Swift swimmers will take center stage in Built for Speed. Explore some of the ocean’s fastest animals, get a closer look at the assembling of an orca skeleton, examine a 45-foot-long catamaran and wingmast from ORACLE TEAM USA, and compare the forms that make these ocean racers fast in fluid.
Built For Speed is generously supported by Lakeside Foundation,The Bernard Osher Foundation, Wendy and Eric Schmidt, and Lucy Jewett.
