One of our favorite haunts is OMSI the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
Stevie: The "Case of good health". It displays what you should do with your body and how to take good care of it. How to take care of our hearing and a bunch of other stuff.
The CSI exhibit is really not for young kids. Mabey ok for 16 and up. It is really gory! There is stuff on real murder and its not that very good for young kids to see.
We did science! Chemistry and the study of bases and acids. I tried mixing baking powder with cabage. It turned base in ph. When you shake the test tube it becomes the lowest color when a base. That's how I could tell.
We ran the container ship crain model. Then went for lunch in the cafe and I had a peanut butter and honey sandwich. After we built boats and tested them in the water. We built both sail and power boats. They still had the earth quake house and we experienced a 6.5 richter quake. What I liked best was the room with millions of balls that we got to use electricity and air power to knock them around.
