Opening Day of The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm

Ms. Frizzle and Liz the Lizard are now in the building! We’ve just opened The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm – a really fun, colorful exhibit all about weather!

Ten-year-old Ian and 9-year-old Ivy of Alta Loma liked Ralphie’s Hot Air Balloon Race, while 7-year-old Katrina (“like the hurricane,” her mom explained) and 5-year-old Garret got a kick out of seeing themselves on the screen when they reported the weather in the Walkerville Weather Center.

Cathy Center, a 1st grade teacher from Glen Yermo in Mission Viejo, was checking out the exhibition this morning with her students. Cathy visits once a year with her students on a field trip and said that she really like the new exhibition. But, she’s even more excited about the Educators’ Evening of Science on Thursday, Jan. 22. “I’m going to go remind my other teachers about the event, and we’ll make it a girls’ night,” she said. The Educators’ Evening of Science is our chance to treat educators to an adults-only event, where we close down the center and highlight the programs that we offer. We also bring in our community partners such as the local water agencies, the Orange County Transportation Authority and others who provide free and low-cost programs to area schools.
