Every Wednesday and Saturday, The Children’s Discovery VIRTUAL PURPLE Museum site is updated with new virtual hands-on learning activities based on different activities in the real-life museum.

The Tech Interactive: The 30-minute video available at includes a virtual tour of the downtown San Jose science center, hosted by young “Tech Explorers” Rocket and Jianna. It includes interviews with science and tech professionals from places like Stanford University and Adobe showing how the Tech’s lessons are used in their jobs. Middle-schoolers are in the sweet spot age-wise for the video. The only drawback is that the Tech is such a hands-on place, this just makes you wish you were there in person.

The Tech also added several at-home activities like making an inflatable sculpture or designing a roller coaster, as well as links to educational IMAX movies (still cool, even without the Tech’s giant dome). Read more via Mercury News here.
