Abu Dhabi Science Festival

There is a big Science Festival happening in Abu Dhabi for a week or so.  There are activities up at the Corniche and down at ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center).  Mom, Brian, the kids and I checked out stuff on the Corniche one day and Mom, the kids and I checked out stuff at ADNEC on another day.

Here are a few pics:

Alexander was trying to figure out how to build a car out of legos and testing out different wheel placement to see what made it go faster.  He spent a long time here and had a good time with it.  Cameron ended up watching and trying to figure it all out too.  The people were patient and very helpful.  It was a great hands on activity.
