Great Edutainment at Ontario Science Centre

Edutainment isn't just a 1990 album from Boogie Down Productions that made its way into my collection, it's also something I'm constantly on the lookout for my kids. I seek activities that make science fun, and the MythBusters exhibition currently at the Ontario Science Centre is precisely that.

We visited yesterday after taking in a Humpback Whales doc at the Omnimax theatre. There's plenty for the kids to do as they get to perform hands-on experiments, and there's even a live show. Michelle's favourite was trying to remove a table cloth without breaking the tableware while James dug the "what gets you wetter: running or walking in the rain" experiment.

Is this just for kids? I was thinking of going there next weekend myself.

I enjoyed it, too. It's not just for kids, just ideal for kids.

Thanks, Mike. I am not the biggest Mythbusters fan but I have enjoyed the show and I liked the guys when they were at the Sony Centre last fall.

The exhibitions the Science Centre has been bringing in have been really outstanding.

But maaaaaaan the rest of the place feels so shabby, and you generally have to travel through it all to get to the special exhibits.
