Science Museum

The MN Science Museum is so wonderful. I wish we got there more but, since it is 3 1/2 hours away it only happens about once every 1-2 years. Sorry for the abundance of photos.
Ryan, A and D weaving. N came over too but, I missed him in the picture. Oops.
Putting all of the organelles into the big cell.

This is a favorite here. When you open this little door a big puff of damp air shoots out at you, simulating a sneeze. The kids love to show this to their friends who have never been here before. People usually get scared.

Just so you know.

D thought this was so cool. You need to see how long you can keep the ball in the air while rotating the fan.

My boys checking out the tornado. It didn't photograph real well. You can only see it a little bit up top.

A checking out fossilized poop. FUN. I so love science. Poop is so cool. You can learn so much from it. I do have to say that I don't think cleaning up dog poop is cool though. ISH.

Checking out fossils.

Reconstructing a dinosaur.

D loved this.

The boys made this huge bubble. You are able to see all of the colors streaming through it. D just loved popping it. N was getting a little frustrated.

N checking out water ripples.

A LOVED this. She spent a lot of time here.

It is so great that this place has something for everyone.

For some reason D really liked this. He was doing "an experiment." At one point he left this spot and another kid sat down and D had a total meltdown because he was in the middle of his experiment.

Ooo! A triceratops.

You make the jaws move by pulling on the joystick. N was making him talk to D.

A checking out planarian. I love these guys. They are so cute. If you can call a flatworm cute.

D had to check them out too.
