On April 19th, my mom and I visited the American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. While we walked through the museum, Mom took a stroll down memory lane and told me some of her childhood stories. I wasn’t impressed with the museum because it was very small, but below are some of my favorite parts.
One was the static electricity show, which is where you touch a Van de Graaff generator and your hair goes extremely wild. Upstairs, we discovered two robotic hands, which we played with for about 15 minutes. We carefully built a few towers with the provided blocks. When mom and I were looking around the gift shop, mom spotted an astronaut ice cream sandwich, which she insisted I try because she never had one when she was a kid. Although the ice cream was delightful, the museum was dull.
