On Wednesday, Dec 26, 2007, we had field trip to Discovery Museum in Bridgeport.
Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before We clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (Surat al-Anbiya, 30)
He it is Who has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and on the day He says: Be, it is. His word is the truth. (Surat al-An’am, 73)
There're so many activities:
- Freaky, Freezing Science!
It's not just cold outside!
Experience chills and thrills in the CineMuse Theater with frozen science demos.
- Learning about how the NASA works. The kids used the Simulator.
- Watching the movie about the amazing animal of Octopus.
- Fore! The Planet
Have a ball playing nines holes of miniature golf while learning some cool stuff about how nature works.
- Planetarium Shows,
The Skies Tonight: seeing the galaxy as it will appear that very night!
- Learning about the wigly worm for the small kids.
- and other exhibitions.
We were in there from 10 AM till 4PM. We were having lunch together and praying Zuhr and Asr together. I think, there are almost 30 kids from our Muslim Community and about 10 Moms as the chaprones.
Special thank you for the organizers this field trip.
May Allah give you rewards. Ameen.
All kids learned and had fun in the same time.
Alhamdulillah, Allah made the earth and universe just for us.
