Most schools across the region are closed this week for mid-winter recess. In this special edition of Brad's Best Bet, Brad Vivacqua highlights the Museum of Science and Technology.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Winter recess begins Monday, and the Museum of Science and Technology lets kids have fun and learn at the same time.
It's Space Week at MOST, and anyone at the museum can try a variety of hands-on activities, including levitation, the solar scale, and the electromagnetic spectrum.
"Very short two to five minute experiences throughout the museum. One is based on the size of the sun to scale and the earth and how far they are away," explained Nancy Volk, the education director at MOST.
In additon, you can try the new dancing light theatre, or move and groove with an interactive robot.
"It's pretty exciting being on TV, and showing you. I think the MOST is a pretty cool and special place," said Sophie Stokoe, an 11-year-old volunteer at the museum.
The museum is also premiering the film, "Hubble". It follows the final mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
"You see Galaxy's flying past you, and you actually go into a Nebula, it's just an amazing movie. And, because we're in the only domed IMAX Theatre in upstate New York, you feel like you are out in the stars," said Maria Welych, the marketing and public relations director for MOST.
You can watch the film every day this week at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. You can also purchase a combo deal to enjoy the museum and a movie.
In addition to Space Week events, you can also enjoy the museum's traditional exhibits, including Discovery Cave, Toothpick World, or the human heart.
Admission is $10 for adults, and $8 for kids. For more information, visit www.most.org.
