I went with my three friends, so it was a lot of fun! At the museum there is a new exhibit called 'Big Food'. In the 'Big Food' exhibit I learned how heavy 5 pounds of fat is, how much sugar is in beverages, how hard you have to work to burn off enough calories for 1 single pretzel stick, and more. It takes a lot of work to burn off tiny pretzel stick. In the exhibit there is a big bicycle that you can go on and if you petal for long enough you can get the light to go to the top of the tube, which means you burn off enough calories for a baby carrot, a strawberry, and one pretzel stick. I could not do it. The bike was not a normal bike, because it had extremely heavy wheels which made it harder. I think I only burned off enough calories for the one pretzel and the carrot, but I could not make it to the strawberry... but it was still a lot of fun. There were other things in the exhibit too, like a game where you have to guess how much sugar, oil, and salt is in a specific food, and you see how close you can get.
The Big Food exhibit was really fun, and I would highly recommend it to somebody who was looking for a great learning experience in CT!
