Had Doc Brown used his time-traveling DeLorean to explore the Triassic period, the solar system or the ocean floor, maybe he'd have found a companion in Ms. Frizzle, the ambitious science teacher behind the wheel of children's book series, The Magic School Bus
. Learn from his mistake and follow Ms. Frizzle's science class to the Magic House (516 South Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood; 314-822-8900 or www.magichouse.org
), which hosts the interactive exhibit The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm
. The family-friendly fun offers a seat on the school bus as it travels through all kinds of weather, explains the scientific methods behind weather prediction, and provides a detailed look at weather tools, maps, graphs and more. The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm is on display Tuesday through Sunday (February 9 through May 27), and is free with regular admission ($9.50).
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 9. Continues through May 27, 2013
