Lawrence Hall of Sciences

After Ty's meet on Friday we took advantage of being in Berkley and visited the Lawrence Hall of Sciences for an afternoon of hands on fun.  One of Ty's teammates, Sam, was able to join us which made the afternoon much more fun.  

The boys had a great time exploring the mind games, animal exhibits, space, earth and engineering. 
Started with some fun climbing on a strand of DNA 

 Then on the big whale
 Foggy view
 Lots of puzzles throughout the museum
 We spent a good amount of time at the building table with simple rectangle blocks. 
 Tyler built a skyscraper with a deck and patio.
Sam built a pirate ship.

 I built a twisty tower

 Globe with interactive information about different topics. 
 Space version of the globe, staring into the sun. 
 We headed outside to see the way rivers flow and what happens whe you change the flow. 
 Engineering giant marble tracks
 Wind power experiments

 Wind tunnel
 Testing parachutes

 Pre-made ball runs

 Another ball maze
 Pin wall 
Tyler's hair made his head look like an apple
Sam in pin form
 Sun was setting on our way out.
