O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

School doesn't stop for vacations

Over Christmas, we toured the Museum of Flight. We boarded the Concorde, sat in the cockpit of a Blackbird, toured a retired Air Force One, and perused WWI flighter planes, tactics, and uniforms. Here are a few pictures from that.









Then we went to OMSI in Portland. We did brain teasers and played in the science play ground. Here are a few pictures from that.

Edventures

I came across a website that utilizes Legos, Knex, and other materials to teach engineering, science, architecture, art, and other things. One of the assignments on the site was to learn about form follows function, proportions, scale, and design. E was assigned to design a pizzaria including an office, kitchen, dining area, bathrooms, exit, storage room, and refrigerator. The tour, in 3 parts because blogspot will only upload 100MB at at time is his creation.
