McWane Science Center

Directions & Parking

Yes, we love going to zoos, aquariums, and science centers.  I think they could live at the aquarium.  We went to the McWane Science Center on Friday.  We stayed almost 6 hours, and Baylee was not ready to leave.  The rest of use were about ready to drop.  We had a great time, I wish Sci-Quest was more like it.
Here are some pictures we took.

 Okay, this was really hard.  I tried it; it would be a great way to work out the upper body.  Baylee was having trouble, so Molly decided she would try to help.  As you can tell they didn't get very far.

Tommy was going to try to show me up, and do it faster and better than me.....He slipped on the way up.

 Yes, she is very entertaining.  

 Can you tell that she doesn't like to get her picture taken?

 And this one does?

 Okay, I thought these were so cool.  These are casts of ant colonies.  The top one is of Fire Ants, and of course we can't remember what the other one is.

We loved this exhibit.  We could have stayed there a lot longer, but people were waiting. We even went back a second time.  

I think the most fun was when the girls rode the roller coaster simulator ride. I laughed so hard, the people watching that didn't even know us were laughing.   We could here them screaming!!!  Click on the picture below to watch the video.  This was taken on my phone....we are not professionals. 

This week we have had SAT's .  And Friday and Saturday we have our Debate and Speech Tournament.  So we have not done "traditional" school work this week.

  4. What a cool trip! Those ant colonies are amazing. I never realized they were so extensive, or that they came in different shapes.

  5. That place looks AWESOME! I want a cool science center! :( ;)

  6. Your trip looks like lots of fun! We go to museums once every year or two, but the kids sure love it when we do!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Selena! I came over to check your blog out and realized we live in the same state, possibly the same area! We're in Shelby County.

    McWane is a lot of fun, but man, you can spend a ton of time there and it's exhausting! We've got a similar fish pictures... :o)
