On the morning of March 3rd, I was a bit confused when I woke up surrounded by images of galaxies, nebulas, and planets.  I quickly remembered though that the girls from several different Science Club for Girls groups and I were having an out of this world experience on our overnight stay at the Boston Museum of Science!

Cosmic

Aside from getting to sleep in the awesome Cosmic Light room in front of the Hayden Planetarium, we explored nearly the entire museum, and enjoyed many fun, hands-on activities including:

–          Being fossil and bone detectives

–          Seeing a live turtle, snake, and tarantula

–          The world’s largest indoor lightning show at the Theater of Electricity

–          An amazing show at the Hayden Planetarium

–          And a captivating Omni movie about migration!

The Mathematica exhibit was particularly interactive and really got the girls excited about math!  Here are the girls enjoying a display of Kepler’s laws of planetary motion:

Overall, our sleepover at the Museum of Science was engaging, a great learning experience, and definitely fun!  The girls were exposed to many different exciting fields of science and had a blast!
