Getting on/off a bus. Walking according to personal preference at St. Louis Science Center, a 3-story facility with elevators.
In the hotel breakfast room off the main lobby, the buffet offers a rotating variety of choices such as eggs and bacon, waffles, hot oatmeal, yogurt, cold cereal, fruit, and more.
We’ll board our bus for a field trip to the St. Louis Science Center (SLSC), one of the top five science centers in the nation. There, grandkids with help from grandparents will build our very own DIY robot — a Scribble Bot — using a low voltage DC motor, copper wire, batteries, markers, and a few household items. Then we’ll create art using our robot! After the session is over, we’ll have time to explore the Science Center on our own. The SLSC was recently named one of the Top 10 Science Centers for Families by “Parents” magazine. There are more than 700 hands-on exhibits from Amazing Science Demonstrations to a life-sized animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex and much, much more.
At a local restaurant. We’ll then stop by a true St. Louis icon for a special treat. (Grandparents, this St. Louis landmark is located on historic Route 66!)
At a local school, an expert instructor will lead us in programming robots that are built from NXT LEGO Robotic kits.
At a local restaurant, we’ll have a plated meal and order a select menu; milk, soft drinks, coffee, tea, water included, other beverages available for purchase.
Returning to the hotel, we’ll gather in the breakfast room for a hands-on experiment.
