Day Filled With Science!

We had an awesome day at the opening day of the
Cambridge Science Festival!










Saw some cool silk chickens - of course she wants one now!










Learned about where the household water comes from & where it goes when it goes down the drain. http://www.cdm.com/





Saw a great show "Science Comes Alive" that was put on by the MIT Alumni Club of Boston.
KM got picked for to assist in an experiment.





Learned the science behind the "red magic fish"!





KM's favorite part of the show that was the experiments with the carbon dioxide - (dry ice)!


We wandered into a large room with boards set up everywhere and then she discovered that they were all paper airplane experiments! She has spent the last 3 weeks finding paper airplane directions, plans and printouts on-line.

As we were leaving - she spotted Ruff Ruffman - her favorite on PBS!

We had a spectacular day, the weather was perfect and we got some incredible information. . .

to think about.



If you are in the area - or close to the area - I would suggest the ride in this week as it was totally worth it. There are events and attractions going on all week in different parts of Cambridge!
