After making our way through that exhibit we headed upstairs to one of the full time, hands on exhibits. Of course A was immediately drawn to all things human body related and explored how lungs work, muscles move, and our heart pumps.
And then..... The best things ever for a future orthopedic surgeon....an artificial knee! For a child who has wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon since she was 2, and who just last week told me that she wants to study prosthetics after we are done with cellsm and learn everything about the field, well....this was heaven.
When I finally was able to drag her away from the prosthetica, she found her way to the boneyard and spent some time identifying different bones.
She finished off her human body exploration by checking out a brain scan.
She said it was the perfect day.
We explored a lot more of the museum as wellm and took in an I-max film about tornado research. I was thoroughly tired by the end of it all, but it was worth it to see the smile on her face.
