Science, Learning and Fun!

The alternate title for this post is "More tales of a nerdy engineer..."  

About a month ago my boyfriend and I went to his cousin's wedding.  While we were being tourists in a neighboring city we decided to visit the science center to kill some time and have some fun!

And of course I had to take many pictures! 

I'm "driving" a tractor... they actually had a really good agricultural display area, but I guess that's what happens when you live in the prairies!

Adam playing with trucks!

More of me on the tractor - selfie style!

Using pulleys to experience your weight on other planets! There was the moon, mars, and something else I can't remember right now, I made the mistake of picking the heaviest one first... never was all that good at fractions! :P

Oldie but a goodie! Adam gives this one 4 thumbs up!

I honestly can't remember what this had to do with anything! lol

Adam getting attacked by a bear!  Ahhhhh!!!

Chillin' out with the sexy toothless hockey player! There was a pretty extensive display area with all hockey related stuff and the science behind various aspects of the game.  It was great! (In case you didn't know, I'm Canadian - eh!?) 

You could be in a bubble!!! I wasn't very successful with it :(

Adam had better luck though! I made him bubble us both :) (that's right, bubble is a verb now)

Kid's corner! Look how tall I am! (not very...I'm even standing on something in this one....)

All good things have to come to an end.  Because of the interactive nature + children I had to go wash my hands on the way out (I'm really not a germ-a-phobe, but we were leaving to go to brunch right after!)

Science continues in the bathroom "Of the several pounds of food you eat a day... about one third of a pound comes out as poop"  

HA! This actually made me lol - also there was no one else in the bathroom...I would have felt like a creeper taking a picture in there if there had been!  

Thanks for joining me on my nerding adventures!
