Our trip was amazing it was perfectly aligned with our fourth grade standards in engineering. The kids had a great time, and the project they created was really well thought out and fun. The kids really got to be engineers and they thought that was cool. The museum was very user friendly.
Our students had a FANTASTIC time and said it was one of the best field trips they have ever gone on. The workshop was very engaging with just the right amount of ‘teaching’ and ‘exploring’. 🙂 And the kids would’ve definitely stayed longer in the museum–such fun activities!
This is a great place for kids to tinker around with different kinds of toys. I chaperoned a field trip here and I was also really impressed with the staff and how they shared their love of learning about science with the kids. It was neat to see the kids learn and create at the same time. I would come back here again. The giant K’nex ball machine really is fascinating, the kids couldn’t get enough of it.
