Mega-Science workshop day


Friday was Mega-Science Day (or Science Mega-Day, depending on your perspective), as Carbon was signed up for two separate Science events.

First I picked him up early from school so he could go to a Homeschool Science Workshop at our local Children's Museum. The theme of the day was Paper Architecture, and for part of it they worked in teams to build these structures from newspaper rolls. The workshop time was up and none of the kids wanted to leave!

Then Carbon's dad left work early and the two of them headed up the road to Seattle, to attend a "Camp-In" at the Pacific Science Center. They have a Harry Potter exhibit right now, so the theme was "Wizard Camp" and featured a "Potions" workshop. They also went to the tropical butterfly house, saw an IMAX movie about the Hubble Space telescope, a lazer show, some other stuff, and got to sleep on the ground under a large model of the solar system.

He had a great time, but he was exhausted by Saturday afternoon!


  1. How fun! I love the newspaper structures idea--that would make a great HS co-op!

  2. Sounds like a weekend we'd enjoy! I'll have to keep my eyes open for a Camp-In at our science museum. Great memories for your son and his dad :)
