We were supposed to meet my parents at the Maryland Science Center today, but after they had to cancel, we decided to go anyway.

The kids had a great time. Karl especially loved the musical ball machine, though this one is different from the one I knew as a child at the Franklin Institute or the one at the Boston Museum of Science, in that it is kid-powered. Also, instead of using pool balls, it uses smaller balls, a couple of which are much heavier than the others and wind up going down a completely different path in the machine. I thought it was very well done, and Karl loved it.

Erika especially liked the pneumatic tubes in the children's section (kind of like a children's museum inside a science museum). You could write messages on pieces of paper, stick them in the capsules, and shoot them across the room through the tube.

A couple of pictures )

We will definitely be going back!
