Science World – Vancouver
SCIENCE RULES!!!!! Science World ROCKS!!!!!! Ch-ch-ch-check it out!
During the holiday break, I went for my first time to Science World with my nephews Matt, Tobin + my sister-in-law Deb. I was so excited! I love science – because I completely don’t understand it! If I had been a whiz at science in school, I guarantee you my friends that the path I took would have been a COMPLETELY different one! I coulda been a contender!!!! I woulda been a veterinarian or a biochemist or a genetic engineer!!! Who knows – a mad scientist? But what better way to educate myself than a trip to an exploratory science museum!
Hmmmm….Gene Wilder looks a little bit like my husband Jeff in that picture……..hmmmmmm……
We traveled to Science World via the Skytrain. Boys + Riding Trains = totally loving it. Matt + Tobin were staring out the window avidly watching the world zip by underneath them until their annoying aunt got her “blog camera” all up in their faces!
“Harumph, harumph. Oh my word, dear girl….NO!!!!!!” says “Snobby High Society Man”.
The magic of Science World lies in all of their amazing interactive educational tools that make learning totally radical! Our first stop was the “Our World” gallery, which teaches kids about sustainability + being green! Here’s Tobin working away on the wheel – running to create watts of energy! Look at the little guy to the right in the grey hoodie, checking out Tobin’s wattage stats.
Aaaaaah, one day I may be working for you, Little Grey Hoodie….
Shows you how much video game concept artists know! I’m going to pitch a game based on chilling out!
Oh, but ladies + gentlemen….the treasure of Science World lies in the Eureka Gallery! This is where the creme de la creme of interactive, hands-on fun lies!!!!
It’s similar to the awesome Exploratorium in San Francisco. If you’re in San Francisco, go visit!
The Eureka Gallery was basically like striking gold. But I am lacking for good photos because at this point the four of us…oh wait correction Deb + I + all of the other adults in the gallery were completely spent + wandering around like sad ol’ tired rag dolls. Children are an endless fountains of bubbling effervescence!!!! Oh, youth! I remember thee!!!! Tobin + Matt were in hog heaven running from one display to another.
The future is in your hands my wee ones….persevere + go forth!!!!
