From The Works "about us" web page: "The Works is a “hands-on, minds-on” museum that makes learning about science and engineering interesting, understandable and fun."
Although I was too young to understand the science behind many of the exhibits, I was not too young to play and experiment.
I played a laser harp. I checked out my figure in a fun house mirror.
I shifted gears.
And I turned a wheel that made a bell ring.
I counted numbers on a scale.
I built with blocks.
I pushed buttons to try to make two stick legs pedal a bicycle.
I watched Mom and Dad try to make electronic bee toys follow a maze. (Mom and Dad wish they could have this toy at home.)
I built with big foam blocks.
Mom built this wall.
And I knocked it down.
I built a car to roll down an incline. Okay, Dad built me a car.
I lifted 20 lbs all by myself (thanks to pulleys). I made designs with a laser.
I checked out the stories of a few professional engineers.
I tried to build a structure that could withstand an earthquake.
I played a traffic control computer game.
I composed music with my dad.
And I tinkered around in the the design lab.
