Voltmeter wiring correction at the Museum of Science

Yesterday, the family and I spent the morning at the Museum of Science, and the kids wanted to revisit the Discovery Center (mentioned in this post). With mild trepidation, I approached the second floor to see the circuits display, and I was pleasantly surprised, thrilled actually, to see that the wiring error had been fixed!

The voltmeter and ammeter are no longer in series! Very nice. I admit that I didn't think it would be fixed, based on the rationalizations in the comments of the last post, but I am very happy to see that it has been. Score one for engineering education! (By the way, it is a fun exhibit; my daughter really liked it.)
