Airborne! – Days 49 & 50

As the Play Dome progressed yesterday, Carly got out the foam blocks and noodles that will be part of the space and staff got a chance to build and play.

Today, the Air Play area expanded as Chris and Virginia began installing the tubing. Then, of course, they had to take a break so they could test and experiment.

Virginia and Carly had a blast sending colorful balls and scarves through the tubes – kids (of all ages!) are going to LOVE this.

Then Virginia painted the wall behind the air tubes a vibrant green. This new exhibit is positively packed with color!
And Water Ways no longer looks like a construction zone. The Museum's newest Experience Coordinators, Lindsay and Merideth, worked hard to give the exhibit a good scrubbing today – floor, tanks, pipes, boats, everything! – and now it practically sparkles. All of the props were left out to dry and they look so ready for the kids to come play with them. Aren't we all!

I was hoping for an update on the fresh new look of the coatroom...

Oh yes! Erik volunteered many hours to prep and repaint the coatroom. Now it's beautiful and we're incredibly grateful – thanks, Erik!

Wow, the exhibit looks great, so far.

As does this Blog--what a great way to stay up to date with PCM! Thanks, Megan
