A handful of tourists continued to mill around Idaho
Falls after Monday’s total
solar eclipse, enjoying the
Museum of Idaho’s offerings for visitors who didn’t
want to sit in traffic after the
celestial event.
Dozens of children took
advantage of an Idaho
National Laboratory-sponsored science, technology,
engineering and math workshop at the museum’s education center.
Kids played with a crackling static electricity orb.
Others placed paper cups
and bowls into a makeshift
plastic wind tunnel, only to
see them shoot out the top.
One station allowed children to make rockets using
straws and paper fins.
“That was my favorite
activity,” Sophia Nelson, 10,
said. Sophia visited Idaho
Falls from Alexandria, Va.
“I think these activities
are really awesome. We
don’t get to learn much
science where I live,” she
said.
Chellie Skoog took her
niece, Sophia, and daughters to the STEM workshop
after grabbing lunch following the eclipse.
“They’re really into
science, so these activities

give them a chance to be
creative, which is great on
lots of levels,” Skoog said.
“It lets them see the world
through a different set of
eyes.”
Ethan Anderson, 12,
of Idaho Falls, enjoyed a
balloon race station. He also
was glad to view the eclipse
in the first place.
“I’m glad Idaho Falls got
to be in the line of totality,
that we were the lucky
people,” he said.
Families
streamed
between the workshop
and a space exhibit at the
museum, which was one of
four national NASA Official
Viewing Locations.
Displays featured moon
meteorites and astronaut
uniforms.
Crowds regularly gathered at an exercise “space
bike” on the lower level.
Three volunteers at a time
were latched into the bike,
which was designed to
allow astronauts to exercise in zero-gravity space.
As participants pedaled, the
contraption spun on a horizontal axis.
Mike Tovar and his
family stopped at the
museum while traffic to Salt
Lake City died down. He
appreciated its timeliness.
“It’s a cool exhibit, and
very related to the eclipse.
So it seems very appropriate
for viewing after the eclipse
experience,” he said. “It’s
well put together.”
