Day 4 – San Francisco – California Academy of Science Trip

We woke bright and early for breakfast at our new hotel Best Western Americana in San Francisco. The rooms were great and it had a pool on the roof!


We used the subway to travel to the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park




We meet Silvia on the ‘living roof’ and Silvia tells us about why it is her favourite place.

Question – What does a starfish even feel like? Answer –  a bit like coral!

Silvia says her farewell to some of TechGirlsUK before leaving to collect her son from school – we have had an amazing few days with her and we will miss her!

Thankyou for your time and enthusiasm – we look forward to our next visit 🙂
