This year will once again see us visiting science museums on our travels as we have a membership and therefore get in free to all of the ASTC Travel Passport Program museums. First up on our visit list was the Museum of Discovery and Science in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Outside the museum is this gravity clock, which shows you the time based on how many balls are on each rail. I don’t see the balls in this photo, but it was cool watching the balls moving around the whole contraption!
Soon after we went inside, we got to see the otters in the Otters at Play exhibit being fed. They were so adorable!
We also went on a simulation airboat ride and then pretended to be eaten by a shark.
I’m not sure what they are doing here, but it’s funny!
Dave and Zachary went in a simulation Mars rover and Simon explored the To Fly exhibit.
In the Powerful You area, we played with various brain games and tested our balance, plus tried to get a robot to conduct surgery and drove a DUI simulator.
There was also a traveling exhibit there at the time having to do with butterflies. The kids enjoys pretending to fly like butterflies!
This was our last day in Florida and soon after this museum, we headed to the airport to return home!
