Last Christmas, instead of more dolls or Star Wars action figures to just get left on the floor and stepped on, my parents gave our children a family membership to Sci-Tech Discovery Center in Frisco.
It was the best gift ever.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center has great interactive exhibits that the whole family can enjoy. Their current exhibit is called Playing With Time which is a traveling exhibit from the Science Museum of Minnesota that gives you the tools you need to see a previously hidden world: events that occur too quickly or too slowly for humans to see. The flap of a hummingbird wing. The expansion of the universe. This imaginative exhibit invites you to examine these invisible dynamics by using high-speed photography, time-lapse videos and animations to effectively turn the world's speed up and down.
