Thanks to an invite from Nina, Claire and her family spent a few hours this afternoon wandering around the ‘Telus World of Science’ — formerly known as the Odysseum — which was formerly known, back in my day (harrumph!) as the Edmonton Space and Science Center.
Yes, we know. Little Claire is still a little young for a museum. But the parents had fun — and one day, when she asks, we can tell her that her first museum visit (a glittering moment in any child’s history, right?) was to a science exhibit — which beats the nut-so creationism museum any day — hands down, no contest.
Of course, I dragged the camera — the small, pocket one — along for the ride and took some random shots of Claire ‘enjoying’ her adventure. Click today’s image for a link to those particular shots, as usual. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for me) Karin didn’t pull out said camera when Chris and I were hacking our skills at the Lego Mindstorms laboratory, programming little robot drones to do our bidding. I don’t think either of us were keeping track of who won — if that was even a possibility.
Overall, I gotta say that I was very impressed. Perhaps we’ll give it a couple more years before we go back, but someday soon I’m thinking a family pass might be in order for more regular visits. I suppose by then the Lego Star Wars display will be gone — but I’m sure we’ll still enjoy it.
