NHMLAC Unveils New Science of SpongeBob Videos for 25th Anniversary

Author: Newsroom

Who makes videos about the science behind an animated sponge that lives in a pineapple under the sea? The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County!

NHMLAC is proud to announce the latest batch of videos in its Science of SpongeBob partnership with Nickelodeon Our World. The videos feature four all-new explorations of the scientific information that inspired SpongeBob SquarePants and his home of Bikini Bottom.

The videos (which are available now at nhm.org/spongebob) cover a wide range of topics, from plankton to super slugs. Each dives into the real-life equivalent of its SpongeBob counterpart and how it compares to the animated version.

See the full description for each video below:
