I love science and engineering. So, I was happy to bring Hunter to the Museum of Science yesterday (discounted tickets through BBBSMB). It was our second outing, so we are still getting to know each other.
Like many kids, Hunter is a pretty picky eater. I try to get him to at least taste different foods (read: vegetables), but so far, I’ve not been too successful. In an effort to keep my costs down (like a good entrepreneur), I brought peanut butter & jelly sandwiches with me (and I know that he likes them). However, he wasn’t loving the jelly or the crusts. So, we got hotdogs (oh yay). But, siting there, looking out over the frozen Charles River, eating preserved meat in synthetic casings, we chatted about all kinds of really cool stuff, like the speed of light and water freezing. Hunter kind of seems like a science-geek! I love it.
And then, as we were getting ready to leave, he dropped this nugget on me…”Allen, can we please watch the “Top 10 Science Stories of 2014” presentation”, which was just about to start. Let me think about that for a sec…um, absolutely! We learned about the SharkCam, how artificial sweetners affect blood sugar, and the enormous dreadnoughtus (biggest dinosaur ever!).
Thanks for the science lesson, Hunter.
