Austin Children's Museum

What a beautiful day to take a trip downtown! The Austin Children's Museum just opened a new exhibit called "Think, Do, Make," which explores nano particle size, flow with aerodynamics and airstreams, and building with connectors and blocks. This trip was a great fit for our fort unit and we brought a lot of knowledge and a big lunch to fuel our day. We ended our trip with some reflection of our experience and of our learning.

Nano magnets in ferrofluid! Totally cool!
