Everyday should start with a healthy breakfast right?  Well for a lot of parents this is a hard thing to do.  What if your child is only into sugary cereals?  What if your kid would prefer to live off Chicken Nuggets and chocolate milk like my kid does?  The Children’s Museum of Atlanta has a super fun and engaging exhibit to help parents who are stuck in a rut like I am.

We took a trip to the Children’s Museum of Atlanta today and while under normal circumstances we automatically equate the space with grade school and younger kiddos, I like to take on a challenge.  My kids and I will visit the Children’s Museum without a little tyke every now and then.  Today was one of those days.  My 12 and almost 16 year old had an absolute blast at the Children’s Museum.

They played games, toured Healthyville and loved Professor Labcoat…

Have you met Professor Lab Coat yet?  No.  Well i’ll let you in on a little secret.  Her real name is Kate and her dress to die for!  She’s a combination of a super scientist, part magician and a whole lot of fun.  Kate Sherrill was just announced as the new science educator for the museum’s STEM programs.

“Kate brings an incredible wealth of scientific knowledge to the table, and we’re thrilled to have her join our team,” said Jane Turner, executive director of Children’s Museum of Atlanta. “Her spunk and enthusiasm for sharing the world of science with children align with our Museum’s focus on teaching children through the power of play.”

We couldn’t agree more this statement!  Check out our interview with the new Professor Labcoat below.
