RIGHT NOW at the Royal Ontario Museum, you can walk on the Moon!
A piece of the moon brought down during one of the Apollo missions, is now on display at the Museum. It’s been put in a wonderful platform for you to walk on.
So you can tell your all your friends you’re one of the few to have ever walked on the moon. #the wittiest thing we’ve ever done
Remember! We also have the Moon on display year around, as well as meteorites from Mars!
The Earth is so pumped for the Museum’s Earth Sciences Weekend it QUAKED in excitement. #earthquake
“ROCK” on at the ROM
It has been the second week of working with ROMKids, and I am extremely excited for this coming weekend.
We have been busy planning for our Earth Science themed Weekend! The ROM is very well known for their collection of World History, but the Natural Science Galleries of the ROM is just as extensive! Don’t’ just take my word, come out and see for yourself.
This week I learned that at the Royal Ontario Museum, Earth Science is not just limited to the Science related to the earth (yes I know that part seems obvious, but please bear with me…) but it is also related to outer space as well (mind blowing isn’t it? Outer space is considered to be part of Earth Science… EARTH Science). With that being said, I have helped plan a variety of fun activities, that are part and off this planet. I also found out that the ROM has pieces of the moon on display! I have to admit, I don’t know where they are, but I’ve made it my goal to find out this weekend (Spolier, I found them! See the photo above!). Who knew we could see something so cool, so close to home?
We have some more work to complete before we’re all set for this weekend. But I guarantee that this weekend is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD!
I hope to see you all at Earth Science Weekend 2013!
