The science museum offers several homeschool classes on a variety of topics throughout the year. Wednesday was one of the days that we went. The kids attended three classes. “Boats and Floats”, “Chillin’ Out”, and “Colours, Colours”. They had a great time, and learned a lot. In Chillin’ Out the instructor made ice-cream from liquid nitrogen – the kids certainly got a kick out of that, and it tasted pretty yummy, too. I learned something new in Colours Colours. The primary colours are red, blue, and yellow (that’s not it – I did know that!), but the primary colours for light are slightly different. They are red, blue, and green. Didn’t know that! When you combine the regular primary colours you get black, but when you combine the primary colours of light you get white. Neat!
We’re looking forward to the next one in January.
