The science center (part of Forest Park) was closed on Saturday when we attempted to tour it, so on Monday, we ditched our plans to visit our local park and have an overall lazy day and drove back to St. Louis to see what the Science Center had to offer.
It did not disappoint, and in fact was probably my favorite part of the week. Had Zack been there it would’ve definitely been my favorite part!
There was a station where you controlled ^ this Rover and its camera. So fun!
All of our girls adore Star Wars! Rae was so giddy when she discovered this case full of memorabilia.
It would take 275,000 US dollars to send her tiny hiney to outer space. She would love to travel into space.
Watching the cars driving under the walkway.
Ah, nerd wit.
This construction scoop “game” was out of order, but there were plenty of other cool things for the kids to try. One of which was an earthquake simulation station. Pretty neat.
We all learned a bit about dinosaurs. They even had fossils we were able to examine, which the workers dug up on a trip to Montana.
Elevators with windows. Enough said?
They had such cool little – for lack of a better word – stations where we could see how things work. The energy in our homes, how much energy our bodies conduct (the kids’ energy was off the chart. The adults, not so much – no surprise there…), petal power, wind power, electric car versus gas powered, etc.
They had added on a farm area since the last time we visited. The even had live chickens there. My girls love all things farm – livestock or produce, so I’m sure they’ll be eager to get back there.
Last but certainly not least, a photo of Eisliegh and Mae “twinning” from head to toe. Could they be any cooler??
