Oh, have SUCH fun! I remember taking my kids into the university lab. 
when they were young. Once, when THE TIMES deputy editor wanted to 
discuss some articles over lunch, the kids came too. They played with 
Soviet children in the seas of the Black Sea in the days of the iron 
curtain; with leprous children, some with damaged limbs, in the desert 
villages of North Africa; came to Jersey just to sample langoustines when 
they came in season, and to Mallorca to pick oranges when one had asked 
about citrus fruits. To them, looking at life down a microscope was as 
every-day an experience as working a calculator.
