Adventure Science Center   Leave a comment

We went to the Adventure Science Center. This is a great place for kids to explore. They have a T-Rex skull. I’m not sure if it’s Sue’s, but I made “rage face” just in case.

It was also home of the Sudkum Planetarium. It was a very interesting hybrid of an optical and digital system.

This set of lights represents stars in the galaxy. The placement seems random, but, when you stand in certain spots, you can see constellations. It is meant to demonstrate how the stars exist on on a flat plane but in three-diminsional space.

They also had several simulators for walking and working in space.

Overall, this was a neat place to spend a morning with kids.
