We have not visited our local science museum in quite a few years. I had heard that the museum updated quite a bit, which was needed. I grew up here too, and the museum hadn’t changed much since I was a kid the last time that we visited. I was pleasantly surprised with our trip to the museum-in fact, we decided to get a membership!
When we first arrived we noticed a maker space lab. The lab had tools, computers, and crafting supplies. The kids learned how to use computer programs to design items to be 3D printed and carved from wood.
Then we headed to watch a movie on the i max screen.
Next we went to the animal lab where we learned about different insects, reptiles and played with a pigmy hedgehog.
We ended the day in the human anatomy/physiology lab.
Overall, a terrific field trip!
