LOTT* WET** Science Center

Saturday, March 9 my husband and I volunteered for an event at Hands-On Children’s Museum in downtown Olympia. We herded kids while parents participated in the education and outreach. Around noon we all headed next door for lunch at the Lott Wet Science Center. It was a beautiful sunny day so afterwards I headed outside to sketch these two views.  

The science center houses hands on interactive displays that teach us about water, the environment and conservation. One display shows the green features of the Lott building. Another allows you to see how much water can be saved by specific actions like taking four-minute showers or installing front-loading washing machines. The science center is open for visitors Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
