Typically, the last thing I want to do in the summer is spend time indoors. I made an exception a few weeks ago to take my kids to the Liberty Science Center and it was the smartest decision ever! The kids had been there before, and they had been begging to return for a while as they all had a blast the last time climbing beams in the construction zone or watching the IMAX movie.
This time we started with a Clifford sighting and even though my kids are older, we quickly learned you’re never too old for the Big Red Dog.
We were treated to some special hands-on time during lunch which included a demo of Liquid Nitrogen-always a crowd pleaser!
We were there for a special event, but these types of activities are always offered at Liberty Science Center as part of their education program. I was so impressed with the people who were working these exhibits. Not only are they super-smart science types, they truly understood kids and how to keep them engaged.
Right now, there is a Rubik’s Cube exhibit which just warmed my little 80’s kid heart. Luckily, it also fascinated each of my kids as well. We spent quite a bit of time learning how to master the cube in all manners!
The Girl was partial to the “Infection Connection”. I didn’t take pictures there, but I’m sure you can imagine the icky-gooey stuff she learned about!
I’m only touching on a very little bit of what LSC has to offer. We could have stayed there for days! I”m certain we’ll return soon-even on a nice summer day!
