Tourism Tuesdays: Gizmos, Gadgets, and Gears at the Maryland Science Center

Maryland Science Center – 601 Light Street
The Maryland Science Center is the perfect getaway for kids. I remember my first trip to the center, when I was at the tender age of 15, was one that was really exciting and fun. This museum / all around fun center has tons of great exhibits for all patrons to learn about anything from the human body to the solar system. Plus, the center is located right in the Inner Harbor so it could be a part of your day trip downtown. From now until Labor Day, the Maryland Science Center will be offering a new exhibit, titled Gizmos Gadgets and Gears. The main premise of this exhibit is to have patrons engineer contraptions from other objects. Do you think you can turn a mouse-trap into a race-car? Can you make a helicopter out of a rubber band and some popsicle sticks? Have you ever made and used a pin-hole camera? Or thought about turning an old CD into art? This new exhibit will certainly get your creative juices flowing. Think you’ve got the imagination? Then head down to the Maryland Science Center. If you’ve got kids of your own, you’re just babysitting someone else’s, or you want to let out the kid inside of you, this tourist spot is one you definitely want to check out.
