In the Community…

On January 18th visit the Rochester Museum & Science Center for the grand opening of two new Expedition Earth galleries: An Ever Changing Planet, and You and Your Earth.  These expansions feature exhibits and hands-on activities that allow visitors to examine what Rochester was like millions of years ago and how human evolution has affected the area.  This is a great opportunity for students (and adults!) to learn about how their actions can impact the environment.

The RMSC has been an integral part of the Rochester community for almost a decade.  Do you have any RMSC memories to share, whether as a teacher or parent (or maybe from your own childhood)?

    One of the things that impresses me about the RMSC is that even though it contains plenty to interest our kids, there is also a lot that I personally find interesting. The upper floors have had a lot of math and science activities that I’ve never seen before: a plastic rod that becomes invisible when submerged in a clear liquid, strange pictures that suddenly make sense when viewed in a curved mirror, a straight spinning stick that passes through a curved (hyperbolic) slit.

    (I’m also fond of the Whisper Parabolas right outside the museum!)
