The main attraction was to see the Star Wars exhibit at the Tech Museum in San Jose. They also had a section on genetics at the museum which the science nerd in me loved.
The museum had a complete lab where you could insert the jelly fish green fluorescent protein into bacteria. It takes about a day for your colonies to grow so you can log into their website the following day and see how you did.
I was pretty impressed with my minions work!
We also stopped at the Sacramento Zoo. It has become a tradition to take our picture in front of the fish tank even though the last two times we've been there it's been dry. It's a fun way to see how the babies are growing.
