A Visit to Our Favorite Place...The Sciencenter!

Worms! That's what I and J got to see today during our visit and preschooler story time. J loves the water table in the small children area and made a bee line for it upon entering the building.

I did tear him away long enough to see the worm pile. He was brave and did poke one gently, then quickly lost interest. I watched from a distance and didn't care to interact with worms.

We spent a lot of time there and a lot of time in the area with simple machines and the absolute favorite place is the Discovery Room which has little science labs and kits for the kids to enjoy. We played with spinning tops, fingerprinting, the moon balance game, water drops, and magnets. All in a good day's work!

We also spent some time with a new exhibit developed at our science center that's been away at Epcot for several months. It's here for the summer and the exciting thing is that my husband is featured in one of the videos. More on this later...if he lets me elaborate!!

The kids all worked on saving a populous from a broken dam as well. The engineers were feverishly working to correct the imperfections on the dam wall.
