We spent the most time playing in a temporary exhibit on the Science, History, and Culture of Corn. In a state full of cornfields, in a state where we’d eaten more corn in a week than we usually do in a month, learning the history of corn and how corn is used – not just for food – was fun, especially when it came to the interactive exhibits. In this video, John creates an explosion with corn.
A few minutes later, he discovered what it’s like for his farming cousins in the Midwest to drive a harvester.
Gotta love that Foucault Pendulum!
Thanks, Indy, for an afternoon of being a kid in one of the many museums at White River State Park.
Sounds like great fun!
Who knew corn was so cool!? Sounds like a fun day!
