Thanks to former pro skateboarder Tony Hawk, your child’s thoughts about physics are about to change from boring to rad. And your thoughts just might change too when you visit the “Tony Hawk: RAD Science Skate Exhibit” at the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale. From learning the science behind Hawk’s famous trick “the 900” to testing your balance with skateboard tricks like “grinding” and “manuals” on the safety of a padded surface, visitors will be stoked to be skaters and scientists for the day with 25 interactive displays at the exhibit. See just how rad physics can be from now until September 2 at MODS, located at 401 SW Second St. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Ticket prices, which include entry to one IMAX movie and all exhibits, are $19 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $15 for children 2 to 12. Children under 2 are admitted free. Call 954-467-6637, or visit mods.org.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: June 3. Continues through Sept. 2, 2013
