My mummy gave me a necklace with a nice tag on it. I can now become  a ToyVoyager. 
The world is a big place. What do I want to see there? I shall need some missions. Any suggestions are welcome, please message my mummy.
I am so excited. Mummy, where can I go first?

Mummy took me down to town at lunch time. There's a big castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Works are currently being done to improve the area.

This statue is of David Lloyd George, who was a Member of Parliament for the area, and became Prime Minister.
It started to rain so we went home.

Today, we drew straws to see who would go out with Mummy! I won.
We've come to Techniquest, a hands on science centre associated with Glyndwr University in Wrexham

Heat sensitive things.

Mirrors. How many of me can you see?

Outside, we caught the end of a rocket-launching session.

I think they said the pressure they were going up to was 50psi for these demonstations.

Back inside, there's a weather station. It wasn't a very windy day.

This is an orb, with a layer of fluid between two domes. Shiny crystals in the fluid show the lines of flow.

It's party time! It is Captain Caramel's birthday.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1w9wVRUWI/AAAAAAAADE8/2FfUmpqC75Y/party1.jpg
There's a candle on the cake.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1w-kiPm7I/AAAAAAAADFA/fDlNRFP3jpI/party2.jpg
After the cake, we played with these balloons!

Magna Science Adventure Centre, England - 27th February 2011

By: miapearl

On our way home, we went via Magna, an industrial science museum set in an old steelworks near Rotherham/Sheffield.
There were 4 zones. The first zone we went to was Water.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1w_-ZXM9I/AAAAAAAADFI/xwkq_VwwDQo/magna1.jpg
A whirlpool exhibit.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1wr5AR-ZI/AAAAAAAADEY/mGZS79C0iuU/baconmagna2.jpg
Everything's blue-y purple.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1wrOreP0I/AAAAAAAADEU/R_Q9j0K3RsE/baconmagna1.jpg
A water cycle exhibit, with "clouds" and a little river.
Next, we went to Fire.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xKbEXPOI/AAAAAAAADFc/cD5hAqYR3Ts/magna6.jpg
This is a fire tornado.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xLAhbxrI/AAAAAAAADFg/jIyqqmSGJAo/magna7.jpg
Lighting isn't that good for photographs with the fire tornado.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xL9wxgrI/AAAAAAAADFk/q1k7JMrxJ7A/magna8.jpg
Next stop was Air. This is a musical exhibit with tubes and things.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xN0DmQmI/AAAAAAAADFs/ffeMvOrHioE/magna10.jpg
The exhibit can be quite noisy.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xOgbflFI/AAAAAAAADFw/qToxTQI2vqo/magna11.jpg
We then went for a game of Air hockey.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xPR7BFFI/AAAAAAAADF0/COgpujYJXho/magna12.jpg
The air blows through holes in the table and lifts up the puck ever so slightly.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xQIATL2I/AAAAAAAADF4/-aHVjrziyR0/magna13.jpg
This is a frequency exhibit with little polystyrene balls bouncing.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xQ_aWb8I/AAAAAAAADF8/oXPrw0HPb8c/magna14.jpg
This is a different frequency.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TXPR5PSfHjI/AAAAAAAADHM/GqR7W1vUC2c/baconmagna3.jpg
Before going on to the final area, we caught some of the Big Melt show, a reconstruction of how they made steel. This is the arc furnace.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xRr1p-uI/AAAAAAAADGA/eezC5qFLg4Q/magna15.jpg
We went to the final area, Earth. The set up is quarrying "rocks" and these get picked up by the children and taken somewhere by wheelbarrow before going on conveyor belts and distributed either back to the "quarry" or to a chute.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TW1xSpjXo-I/AAAAAAAADGE/zOz8QPCimTQ/magna16.jpg
Can you see the "rocks" on the conveyor belt?
