I had a bit of fun at the Houston Museum of Science’s massive and impressive Energy exhibition. There were plenty of hands-on exhibits for grandchildren to play with and (perhaps?) learn something from.
The graphics were amazing, the huge model of Houston and it’s petrochemical industry was impressive and put on a very watchable show of explaining the different levels of the land beneath and the energy which is extracted from the earth. Day turned to night on the vast model, the moon and stars appeared, lights came on in the skyscrapers etc.etc.
But the most compelling display was the infra-red heat-seeking camera, which showed up the hot spots on our bodies and clothes. Grandchildren and grandparents alike all enjoyed posing in front of the camera which showed our hot spots in red, our cool spots in yellow.
Nice to know my head, feet and body were warm, with cool legs, arms and face. The inanimate bag I was carrying came out in a nice shade of purple.
