Saturday at the Science Center

My kids love field trips related to science.  This past Saturday we spent the day in the city at the science center.  Along with the regular exhibits we took in 2 demonstrations (properties of Fire, and how does pop get fizzy) and 2 movies (Big Bird: one world, one sky and Molecularium).  No pictures of them in the forensics exhibit, by then I had a migraine starting.
