The Tech Museum, San Jose, California, USA
Our family loves exploring the Tech Museum. Every time we visit, there is more to learn from their permanent exhibits and always very interactive, stimulating rotating exhibits. Highlights are the Earthquake Platform which simulates some historic events around the world, taking a seat in the jet pack simulator, the biodesign lab (real science in action!) and the tech studio where we spend hours tinkering and testing. They also have great educational films in the IMAX dome theater.
Here are some topics we discussed after our visit to the Tech Museum:
- What new technology is most exciting to you?
- What kinds of technology do we still need to develop to make our lives better?
- Name different kinds of engineers. What does it mean to “engineer” something?
