Floating Jello and More!
At the end of last month the Fortville Mama kiddos and Coach Man got to experience a special preview of a new traveling exhibit at the Indiana State Musuem - NASA's Destination Station! They were in awe of all the cool interactive features of the exhibit and learned so many interesting facts about life in space!
Little Man loved learning the about day to day life for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). He even got to meet a real life astronaut during the preview day! In his words: way cool! As budding scientist himself, he enjoyed hearing about the experiments done aboard the ISS, and how they are being used to help people on Earth. For example, experiments involving the purification of water. Baby Girl was amazed by the floating jello in the video about life in zero gravity. Plus she was extremely excited to make the Indy Star's photo recap of the opening of the new exhibit! It's the little things in life that make a 4-year-old happy.
As a homeschooling family, we loved the interactive nature of the exhibit! Tons of multimedia, both visual and audio, plus lots of hands-on activities for little ones to learn through! One of the things I love most about the Indiana State Museum as a whole is that there are so many hands-on ways to learn and experience! The exhibits take you on a journey, make learning fun and allow each visitor to connect in the manner that best speaks to them! What's a mama not to love?!
Have your own budding astronaut or scientist? Make sure to visit NASA's Destination Station at the Indiana State Museum before June 29th! When you visit, make sure to tweet about your adventure! @FortvilleMama and @IndianaMuseum want to hear all about your favorite parts!
