Welcome to the Big Nickle!!!!! We are home from Sudbury, and we all had a blast. Our first stop was to Dynamic Earth, a science and geology centre that includes a tour of a mine 7 stories below ground. William and Charlie had a great time playing in the 'pretend' mine, as well as exploring the real one.
The climbing is always fun.......
What six-year-old doesn't like setting explosives underground?
This is a section of the mine from the early years - the mine is set up in different time periods so that you can see how the industry has changed over the years.
and panning for gold!!
More photos to come of Science North, but I do need to take a little break - you know how it is....needing a vacation after your vacation?
We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate. - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
