One of my favorite things to do is watch my sons as they learn, explore, and figure things out. It never ceases to amaze me how smart children are, and little man is already learning about the solar system in school, so a place like the New York Hall Of Science is perfect for them. Interactive exhibits about everything from atoms to optics teaches them advanced science that today’s children seem incredibly capable of understanding.
This last Saturday was Super Cyberchase Day at the New York Hall Of Science, and the boys had the opportunity to meet Harry and Digit from WNET’s Cyberchase and learn about recycling. Children played the “Trash Dash”, make pinwheels and pop-up Mother’s Day cards, all while screening episodes from this season of Cyberchase, an educational and socially conscious program from PBS.
It was our first time bringing the boys to the New York Hall of Science, so after the event we walked around and enjoyed learning and discovering interesting facts at the other exhibits. So much was interactive and involved people of all ages actually getting in and learning, trying, creating…it was so much fun!
The boys also learned about submarines,
engineering, building, and constructing,
and even climbed a rock wall for fun.
We had such a great time, but absolutely have to return because we couldn’t do it all in one day. My husband’s favorite part was definitely the rockets. They are no longer active and are now on display outside.
