about The Tech Museum :
A sampling of Museum activities: You can design your own roller coaster - and then "ride" it. Create your own multi-media production with yourself in the starring role. Play in virtual worlds by yourself or with strange people called Bubba and Elaine. Sit still for a laser portrait, and then manipulate it so you look even stranger than you already do. And create your own Web pages. The museum has figured out countless ways to make understanding technology a blast.
In addition to a small theater, which highlights some aspect of an exhibit, the Museum has a large domed Imax theater, which offers films from 11am through 4pm. Special live presentations by staff also run throughout the day. Recently, we saw a dog robot sit up and beg for one staffer, and pack a suitcase for a trip to Mars for another.
In fact, volunteers and staff are everywhere and quick to answer any and all questions you might have about the Museum. You can easily spend an entire afternoon here, and still want to come back again and again.
The Tech Museum Summer Camps feature hands-on science and technology classes designed for science lovers entering 4th - 8th grades. Kids choose from 14 different class topics, including Lego Robotics, Video Game Design, Rocket Science, Animation Sensation, and more.
