May 24 It was a trip-to-OMSI day.  When we got there we discovered all of the upstairs exhibit halls were closed to get ready for the BodyWorlds 3 exhibit.  Fortunately, the kids’ absolute favorite exhibit is downstairs in the Turbine Hall- it’s the one where they fill a 2-liter bottle with mixtures of air and water to create enough pressure to launch it up to the ceiling.  They could spend hours there seeing how many times they can hit the bottle on the top of the guide track.

Since the exhibits we usually go to after we drag the kids away from the Turbine Hall were closed, we did ones that we hadn’t spent much time with in previous visits. We did experiments in the chemistry lab, went to the Circus Science demonstration, and went to a show in the Planetarium.  I think the Planetarium could be a new favorite for all of us.
