Boston Museum of Science

I admit it, we are NERDS! Yesterday, Owen tells us that a boy in his class asked him if he's been to the Museum of Science. Well of course, we have to make immediate plans to correct this over-site! So today we went to the Museum of Science. It was fun and we spent a few hours there.

These geometric "wands" were being dipped in bubbles and making really cool shapes.

This was a really cool board explaining projection.

This was the side view of the projection exhibit.

This was the view from the end peek-hole. Way Cool!

Here was the board explaining probability.

This was the cool exhibit. Balls were coming from a hole in the top center and randomly coming down through the pegs. The end result was a cool "bell curve" formation at the bottom.

Owen trying to fill a box with hexagon blocks.

Owen making a magnetic picture with small colored chains.

A model of how the pyramids were built.

Allie demonstrating how to brush teeth.

Now I liked this exhibit!

That's one BIG tree.

If you've seen Star Wars, you know what this is.

My little paleontologist.

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
