San Francisco's Exploratorium - the fun doesn't stop when you leave

San Francisco's Exploratorium is high on the 'must visit' list for Bay Area residents and out-of-area visitors alike. But, did you know you can take some of the fun, hands-on learning experiences home with you?

Beginning the Solar Puppy project

One Christmas gift our 12 year old granddaughter received was RobotiKits' 6-in-1 solar powered projects. New Year's Eve was just the right time to tackle the first project: Solar Puppy!

RobotiKits solar powered projects

Since our engineers were working at night, when they had the puppy (named Caroline, by the way) completed, they substituted a bright incandescent light for the sun. What happened? Take a look at the video to find out.

Often I am annoyed by stores at museums, not liking the way an exhibit ends inside the gift shop. It's different at the Exploratorium--you need to seek out the store, just to the right of the entrance doors. When you next visit the Exploratorium, or are walking along The Embarcadero, stop in and take a look at the wide variety of toys, books, kits, etc. Great gift ideas for birthday or holidays.

Wishing you fun with your own RoboPuppy, or whatever tickles your fancy and sparks your enthusiasm.
