TROY — Kate Cabral visited the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology in Troy for the first time on Monday to expose her children to science, and to have some fun.

Cabral’s 21⁄2-year-old daughter, Emma, was fascinated with one of the museum’s first exhibits, running back to it each time Cabral attempted to move on to the next display.
