    I love the Exploratorium, and I’d love to take the whole family. And the book looks like something both my kids will devour.

  2. says

    My children are the right age to verbally express their wonder about nearly everything in their world, and to assimilate basic answers. As elementary school age children, they love to think about how machines work, how living things grow and change, and explore questions through play and experimentation. They would make great use of Exploratorium tickets and Exploralab!

    I have two teens and I love all of the questions that they continue to ask, because most of the time to them…”That doesn’t make sense”, so I help to make sense when I can. That’s why museums are so wonderful!

  4. Jacqueline Trimmer says

    My daughter is 5 years old and loves exploring the world around her. She has enjoyed going to places like the Academy of Sciences, The Lawrence Hall of Science, Monterey Bay Aquarium, etc. And I believe that she would absolutely love the Exploratorium as well! She is also a bookworm, so the book would also be a great prize for her! This would be her first time there if we won the tickets and I’m sure it also wouldn’t be our last :) thank you for the chance to win!
