"Learning is the discovery that something is possible"

The title of this post is actually a quote I once read and I thought it really applied to our day at the Don Harrington Discovery Center.

The Discovery Center has over 100 science exhibits, a planetarium, and tons of hands-on opportunities for kids. I have taken the boys there since they were toddlers and it's still one of their favorite places to go.
Cayden's favorite exhibits this year were all in the biology area. He learned about veterinary surgery and used a microscope to study human and animal blood cells.





Braxton learned about the surface tension in bubbles and how circuits work.




My favorite exhibit was the wind tunnel...it delivered big laughs and great photo opportunities (and you know I love those)...who could ask for more than that!

Any place that makes learning hands-on and fun is a treasure . . . as is that rare teacher who can do the same and inspire something that we didn't even know existed, much less existed within us.

The wonderful quote by the way is from Fritz Perls.
