When Jojo heard about the “Hall of Heroes” exhibit coming to Orlando Science Center, she was immediately excited!! Although we came close to missing out on this fun display, we planned a last minute trip with our other friends who also have the yearly membership.
We were not sure what to expect, other than a large statue of Hulk, which Jojo knew she wanted a picture with.
The hall was filled with hands on fun with superheroes and science fiction characters, where you can discover your own super powers.
Not only were the stations set up with science information and experiment activities, but the displays also included eras of comic book history, character origin, development, and traits of these Heroes we have grown to love so much!
The most shocking item on display was the #1 Spiderman comic book, which has a record auction sale price of $1.1 MILLION!!!
Nothing beats the hands on learning we do as homeschoolers. Like touching, and finding out how two items can be the same temperature, but one feel much colder than the other.
Even though we are a pretty dedicated Marvel family, we have just begun our journey into more of the DC Universe. Remember the days when Superman needed a phone booth to transform??? Long gone are those days, but Anna had fun being silly in the Superman phone booth.
Our friend Campbell testing his abilities to use his fingertips to control a robot hand.
Learning about controlling wind and how it impacts different elements, such as fire.
Photo opportunity to show what a hero big sister Anna is with her little sister Jojo.
We loved the movie props, like this Captain America shield. Go “Team Cap” is where us girls all stand in the family.
Matt is “Team Iron Man” so Anna was a sport and posed with him.
Jojo found the microscope with elements fascinating. She liked getting a closer look at the rocks and gems.
Check out our video for more of the fun activities the kids did. Like agility testing, heat comparison, laser fun, x-ray vision, stop motion movies, and much more. Plus the full scale, half replica of the 1960’s Batmobile from the TV show.
If you have a lover of super heroes, this exhibit is such a fun way to peak their science and history interest. We are sad to see it leave Orlando, but it will be traveling to Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, and more. You can find the schedule on their website. Hall of Heroes was created by Stage Nine Design and is distributed by Exhibits Development Group.
Grab your kiddos, their friends, and check it out! Let us know your thoughts. I feel this was a very small introduction into the world of MegaCon, which is on the girls’ bucket list for 2019. We shall see.
