A last hurrah Science and Industry Part 1
Jonas was very excited to go to the Museum of Science and Industry. He had been waiting all week to go and was ready to go to the big city of Chicago. It was an amazing day. Everyone was equally worn out with all the excitement of the day. At the museum the first stop was the Zephyr. We got a chance to go in the mailcar and see how the diesel engine works. The zephyr was one of the first diesel engine trains in the world.
Next we ventured underground to a coal mine. There were lots of loud noises and adventures, and unfortunately because the sun doesn't shine 600 meters below the surface of the earth not a lot of light to take a good picture.
We got a chance to climb around and go in the cabs of a bunch of farm machines. However the best displays and interactive setups were yet to come. Stay tuned.
