On a recent visit to Austin we visited the amazing Thinkery, formly the Austin Children’s Museum founded in 1983. The Thinkery delivers its mission through an ever evolving mixture of exhibits and sessions that focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math and museum activities revolve around educational experiences led by staff.
On our two week stay in Austin we visited the Thinkery on four occasions, spending several hours at each visit – busy and immersed in exploration and discovery.
Here are some highlights of our visits.
Experimenting with drag and lift.
Building flying vessels – exploring the shapes of wings and angle of trajectory.
Painting with hot wax.
Playing with the water – inside and outside.
Making frozen shadows.
Playing with light…
So much fun!
