Getting out of town

We decided to take advantage of the long weekend and head over the hill for some play days.

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.
