A slightly less wet day was predicted but as we were heading to Dundee Science Centre it didn’t really matter what the weather was going to be like.
First of all though domestic duties needed to be done. Beanster fetched more water so we could have cups of coffee.
At the science centre the main theme was Space. We watched a show about rockets where we learned that rockets are heavier up at the top than the bottom and that this combined with thrust pushing the rocket up and the pulling down of gravity is what helps the rocket get into space. Beanster then recreated this in a little rocket experiment with the help of her glamorous assistants Katherine and Lyall.
One of Beanster’s favourite things to do is to go along the same journey a bogey takes as it is formed from the back of the mouth, up into the back of the nose and out through the nostrils. There is a large model children can climb into to do this.
One of the best interactive exhibits was the sandbox which you could construct different landscapes on. We spent a long time at this making contoured landscapes, volcanic landscapes and seabeds. Apologies if some videos are the wrong way round.
Tomorrow we head home via cousin H’s birthday party. I guess we had better have a shower before we leave eh! 😉
