Nestle Family Summer Block Party: Day 3

Day 3 already?  The Nestle Family Summer Block Party is half over already!  Have you been entering all the great giveaways on all five blogs?

Obviously, by looking at my blog, you have realized by now that science is a major part of my life.  I love talking at career fairs and sharing the fun of science with those who may eventually venture into the field.  One of the places I love to take my kids for hands-on experiences is the Louisiana Children’s Museum located right here in New Orleans.  Who ever said New Orleans isn’t for kids?!?  With so many hands-off places for little ones in this world, it’s nice to take my girls to a place that is completely kid friendly, fun and educational.

With over 30,000 square feet and more than 100 interactive exhibits, my kids LOVE this place!  The girls love reading section, the supermarket, the pretend restaurant and of course the science exhibits!  This weekend, the Louisiana Children’s Museum is hosting “Fetch! Beach Science” on Saturday, July 17th from 11:00am-3:00pm. From the website:

Dive into the science of the beach.  Do an experiment in the Atrium to find out why you can float better in salt water.  Learn about the spirals of a sea shell and then create your own in Art Trek.  Discover sand writings and make a sand bottle.  Help measure the length of a blue whale in our architecture exhibit.”

Sounds like a great way to spend the weekend!  And it’s even air-conditioned…BONUS! :)
