TouchTomorrow - A Festival of Science, Technology & Robots

This is a pretty cool event in Worcester. Parking can suck a bit and it is in Worcester, but there you go. Great for those into space and robots though.

Seems a lot of things are happening in the metrowest area this weekend and next.

I know this thread has been around a while, I have not read every reply sorry if someone already suggested it...

Check out Groupon, esp when they do their % off activities. I only ever buy my kids admission to Sky Zone trampoline park on there. Last week I bought them admission to a brand new rope course and zip lining center that just opened. The gate price $80 for two people I paid $36 on groupon.

I do that too, but it's so rare that it's the local one to us that comes up on Groupon, which is a bit annoying.

They do have other stuff, but it's tricky finding stuff that both kids can do and enjoy together.

Difficult to choose! But I finally did, & just printed out my free ticket to a nearby museum I've been interested in (but unwilling to pay the entry fee for)....

There's a lot of good stuff going on...unfortunately, we'll be stuck inside a smelly school gym for a cheer competition :/

Though for the amount of practice they have been putting into it, I hope they do well, but I hope they don't win. Could do without having to go to Florida for nationals

Oh no! Hope they do very well but don't win.... (Though I'm sure your young cheerleader would love that!)

Reviving this old thread...

MFA Citizens | Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

The MFA in Boston, giving away a free years membership to anyone who has gotten US citizenship. They started it over the summer. Just show a copy of your naturalisation document and you should be good, if you've gotten it within a year.
