On Thursday, August 29th, we had a field trip to LIGO.
The kids really love the hands on science education center where we started the day.
Then we watched a movie that described what the scientists actually do at LIGO.
After the movie, we toured the area where the scientists work.
After a quick lunch outside, we went back inside to see some experiments.

Ian got chosen to help with the experiments with liquid nitrogen

Then we headed outside to see the big experiment...
Back inside for more hands-on fun
