In news to help us drag ourselves out of the slough of despond, the Science Museum of Minnesota is closed to the public. Wait, no, that’s badly phrased — that’s not the good news. The good news is that the Science Museum of Minnesota is making their big screen science movies freely available to the public. Right now, you can just click and watch “Dinosaurs Alive!” and “Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs” and “Wild Ocean” on your computer screen.
Your computer screen is probably not a giant dome that you view in front of and above you from a reclining chair, so when the museum reopens you might want to book a visit to get the full experience and thank them for providing the service.
P.S. I’ve seen the dinosaur one, it’ll keep kids’ attention for a while. I’m going to watch “Wild Ocean” myself this afternoon, as a distraction from grading.
