W got to be a part of a great new program at the Hall of Science. They are usually closed on Mondays, but opened today to give workshops to homeschooled kids! They had 3 classes - one for each age group (K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th-8th grades). W's class was called The Eyes Have It and was all about 3D perception and optical illusions. We also watched another cow's eye dissection and all the kids got to just hang out and explore. W loved the new exhibit on sound. It will probably be there only for a couple more months. I'm glad we get to go back next month and do it again! It was amazing to have the whole place full of homeschoolers. It was such a huge difference between today and being there with all the schooled kids. It was so wonderfully quiet. The kids were respectful, well behaved, and really enjoyed the workshops.
