She shoots! She scores! Rat Basketball?

She has the hoop in sight, she runs, she shoots she scores! The basketball flies through the hoop and so does the small furry player, one of the stars of Rat Basketball at The Science Museum of Virginia. Amazing basketball skills are not something rats are born with, so how does Laura Kramer, the Chief Rat Wrangler, and her team of trainers use science to get these small basketball players to compete in the game?

Watch the video to learn about the science of rat basketball.

Learning Shapes Our World

As both an Architect and a Mother, I enjoy exploring the Science of Architecture with my young children. Architecture involves understanding numerous shapes and knowing how they are used to create buildings and spaces. Since children start learning their basic shapes and colors around the age of two, it is a great opportunity for parents and children to explore shapes and architecture together.
