Field Trip - Montshire Museum of Science

Today, Nick, Sam, Grandma, Grandpa and I went to Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, VT.  The kids had so much fun running from one exhibit to another.  Lets see if I can remember them:
  • Bubbles
  • Gravity Well
  • Turbulence Station
  • Fog station
  • Insects - special magnifying glass that you can see these creatures up close
  • Air flow tubes
  • The Blue Man Group - Nick's absolute favorite part of the museum!
  • Feed the Leaf Cutter Ants.  That was very interesting.  Did you know that leaf cutters do not eat the leaves.  They cut them, take them to their place of abode and the cut leaves turn into fungus, which the ants eat.  (you learn something new everyday)
We also took a walk on one of the outdoor paths and walked past the Conneticut River, saw a red squirrel and a beautiful red-breasted robin.

The kids have already asked to go back and I believe we will.  There are still things that we did not see or do...like walk the "solar system" trail...3.2 miles.
