We went back here for the first time in a while and were pleasantly surprised by the new exhibit in the lower level. It’s a permanent set up with a ‘pirate ship’ of sorts in the center – kids can climb on this and meanwhile the 4 stations below allow kids to explore with science crafts. There is a station where kids create a city with LED light inventions that they come up with, and another station where they can build a ‘survival pack’ and parachute if off of the overhang from the ‘pirate ship’ (or is it a tree house? It’s whatever you want it to be!) I wish Ezra’s science classes at school could be so creative.

We were back here again – Z and E’s dad was the staff photographer for the event but regardless, this street fair had my kids involved from 10 a.m. all the way up to the close at 6 pm. The themes were space, robots and weather.. and we loved learning about all three!

this boy robot from Italy was amazing. Even his mouth and eyebrows moved to show frustration or happiness.
