  • Went for the open house and wow!! It was amazing. And more amazing to see how many people came out to this event. I mean it was like Disneyland crowded But we got to see some very cool science props. Some very interesting robots and tools that's used in space on different planets. And we also got to see the spaceship that will be going to Mars next year. Ha! We got to see a little bit of the future (kinda). Very cool and educational, especially for children. If you're interesting in going check their site for the next time they have it. It's free
  • Review of weekday tour-There is too much time spent watching the intro video. Someone one going to a JPL tour is already space enthusiast; we all know about the planets. Make the video shorter and focus on JPL. The guides rushed us in and out of each area and did not allow time to take pictures. Spend less time telling cute stories and more time letting people take pictures. Ask tour participants in front to trade with those in back so everyone gets time to take pictures with Mission Control, vehicle assembly, etc behind them. Most of my tour was looking at the back of people's heads.
