NaBloPoMo – Day 4 – Technological Advances in Field Trips!

Today my son went on a virtual field trip with his 3rd Grade class with two other schools in the USA – Harlem, New York City and Bellevue, Nebraska. They visited the Seattle Aquarium and the Minnesota Zoo in the US and the Solar Impulse Project in Switzerland.

I am so thrilled that my kids have the opportunity to experience this and ask questions on such fascinating subjects. I know my son loves the aquarium and the zoo but the Solar Impulse project is pretty awesome with a solar powered airplane that will fly around the world. The Europeans have such an inspiring point of view with their passion for life and their care for world as a whole.

This field trip was a Google Plus Hangout that was created and I am in awe at the wonders that exist in technology and how lucky the kids are!

Here are a couple of links for the videos – they are quite amazing so check them out!
