Connecticut's New Science Center
Well, Connecticut's new Science Center opened yesturday and (for the first time) we paid the full amount for a year membership. It was the best $100 I've ever spent. This center has 6 stories, each story is broken into 2 with each 1/2 dedicated to a different form of science. One was for Sports and Human Movement science, another was for Sound and Light; yet another was dedicated to earth studies (geology, the Connecticut river, and energy conservation); one was on Forces (gravity and magnets), it was AWESOME!!! We watched a 3D movie on Dinosaurs and a 4D program on Energy conservation. The kids learned a lot and had fun since the entire place was made up of hands on projects and experiments.
