Gateway's Bear Exhibit

 The Gateway Science Museum kicked off its new exhibit by bringing in a baby bear from the Kirshner  Wildlife Foundation.  It was so neat.  They also had reptiles.  The kids were not as impressed as I was, but still a very unique opportunity here in Chico.

 Inside the kids loved the hands on room all about bears.  Chandler especially loved the bear rug.

The kids looked at different jaw bones and with the help of a volunteer figured out which jaws matched which pictures.

John loved the dress up section.  He pretended to be a bear.  

 The other room was a bit odd.  The kids could put on headsets and listen to information about how different toys worked.  Mac watched one on the Etch-A-Sketch.  John started to listen to one on a jack-in-the-box.  It did not hold his attention.  This display was a bit of a let down.
Overall, a very cool exhibit!!
