My Homeschool Bus Visits Discovery World



Today My Homeschool Bus visits Discovery World in Milwaukee, WI.


The science and aquarium is located directly on Lake Michigan.  The view of the lake is enough to make this a desirable place to visit.  But, there's so much more to see:


My kids got to see what it's like to stand inside a phone booth.


They all three worked together to make music with these blocks that sent some form of electronic wave to create sound.




My children took turns and worked together to light up the lights with their own personal energy.


We even experienced lying on a bed of nails.  One nail, and it hurts.  A bed of nails disperses the weight so it doesn't hurt more than just a small prick that doesn't even pierce the skin.




My husband was in dreamland as he got to have a virtual guitar lesson with the late Les Paul.

My girls chose a craft to make.

 We enjoyed a 3D tour of the solar system.
A little musician in the making!


We also ventured into Reiman Aquarium where we set sail on a replica of a boat, that was suspended from the celing and braced to the sides walls.


There were also jelly fish.



This boat was called the Challenger.  A shipbuilder built it, who had no more than an 8th grade education.  Several men spent many days in the bottom section of the boat where the kids were going.  I started down the steps and turned right back around due to claustrophobia and no moving air.  I figured I'd let the kids enjoy the exploring.

Reiman Aquarium had a station where you could pet a bamboo shark or stingray.  We all opted out except for daddy.








Then, it was daddy's turn on the bed of nails. Come, and join the journey of other TOS Review Crew homeschool field trips by clicking on the picture below:
