A visit to the Science museum

The 4th graders visited Valladolid Science Museum this week, including the planetary and two temporary exhibitions: "Nutrition: life boost" and "The treasures of Tutankhamun".

Some of the interesting things we saw:

Foucault's Pendulum
It is one of the most beautiful and elegant experiments of Physics, which allows to verify the movement of terrestrial rotation.
The pendulum of the Museum is suspended from a braided steel cable of 11 meters in length, and formed by a chromed iron sphere of 20 centimetres radius and 80 kilos of weight.

Permanent exhibition
Rooms with interactive modules about Energy, Chemistry, water, and the nervous system.

Planetary: "Hello Earth"

It is a spectacular projection, produced by the Planetarium of the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, which shows the development of human communication.

Exhibition "Nutrition: life boost" 
Its objective is to transmit, in a pleasant and simple way, the fundamental knowledge on food that any person must possess to improve their health and quality of life.
