Here are some photos from our OMSI field trip back in January. We went with several other homeschooling friends. The kids and I really enjoyed it!
I think Zac would've stayed at this particular exhibit for hours if I would've let him! You pressed these two buttons to fill these 2 liter bottles with water and air. Then you pushed another to launch the bottle. Depending on the combo of air and water you chose, depended on how far the bottles shot into the air.
Blayne and Telie really liked this one too:)
Zac was having a good time building from these different model instructions.
Here they are in a glass elevator going from one level to the next, with Portland showing through the windows.
Blayne the astronaut....
One of the girls in our group went on the table and took some pictures of part of the group eating lunch.
This "Inventors Ball Room" was alot of fun! I think I was having as much fun as the kids in it:) It was full of these golf ball sized foam balls that you could do all kinds of things with. You vacuumed them up with these big hoses, they came dumping in there from all sorts of places, threw them in the fans and watched them scatter.....and on and on.
This was a huge marble exhibit that was really interesting to watch. It was supposed to teach you about probability.
These were just a few photos I got there. It was a great field trip and we're glad we got to go!
Ready to go home!
