Learning about Bernoulli's principle...Hannah and Olivia got to see their first planetarium show, 500 Planets and counting...it cost $1 extra per person. Neptune is Hannah's favorite planet because it's a nice shade of blue.
Yesterday, we spent the day at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in Dayton. Since we have a Cincinnati Zoo membership, admission was 50% off. There are a bunch of places you can go and get in FREE or half price with your membership: http://www.boonshoftmuseum.org/membership/reciprocityThere's a special exhibit there on electricity until May 8, 2011...I liked the activities, making a simple vinegar battery, connecting a circuit (making it longer using a fan and light bulb, that is dim, but light bulb alone is bright), using old electric parts to make sculpture, etc.
There is a small room with a mummy inside, I did not take a photo of her...and in this photo above, a beautiful Egyptian mask, along with the vases that would've contained the organs of the person who was mummified (gross, eh? just not what we're used to). I thought it was very interesting!
