Hello, everybody! My name is Q’Zion and welcome to my blog! ♡
About a week ago, I mentioned in a post that while me and my Goodmommy—my grandmother and guardian—had done many fun things in a variety of fun places, this summer, we hadn’t done anything super extravagant.
To kick off the second half of summer, me and Goodmommy had been discussing some fun places that we could go. After checking amusement parks off the list, we ended up settling on a fun visit to MOSI, also known as the Museum of Science & Industry. Considering that it had been years since I took a field trip there in elementary school, and Goodmommy had never been, we were both super excited to go together.
As always, we had such a blast…and took A LOT of photos! Today I will be sharing some of the highlights of our visit. Let’s go!
First off, we’ve got to acknowledge these outfits. Me and Goodmommy decided to wear matching tank tops with shorts, which was perfect for the summer. We also got a few compliments, at the museum. But I can’t say that I was surprised; we did look super cute!
The first thing we did once we bought our tickets is look around as we walked all the way to the back. We eventually stopped to look at these gorgeous pieces of artwork that were meant to be optical illusions. It’s amazing how an image and our brains can work together to make an image move or to see a certain shape in what may look like a blob at first glance.
The images reminded me of a lesson about Illusions that I had for Visual Art, last school year. In fact, I recognized some of them from that lesson.
After taking a look at the art, it was time to head outside, again. Why, you ask? Well, Goodmommy had allowed me to do the Sky Trail Ropes Course, which is a 36-foot high structure including over 30 different obstacle courses. I had saw it online, and I already knew that I’d want to give it a try!
After one of the staff members helped me put on my harness, we went over some safety rules, and my harness was “clipped in” to the ceiling of the large building-like obstacle, I was ready to go!
If I had to describe the rope course in just a few words, I’d pick thrilling, memorable, and slightly terrifying for those who are afraid of heights LOL. It almost made me feel like how I did in elementary school when I would climb the monkey bars on my school’s playground. Except this time it was much higher up, and the harness made it much safer as a result.
Me being someone who loves things that bring you up in the air, I thoroughly enjoyed the obstacle course. In fact, it’s probably the part of our tip that I enjoyed the most. Plus, Goodmommy did a fantastic job at photographing and recording me while I was up there, as you can see.
Once the course was done and we walked back inside, we stumbled upon this short section called “Slippery Science” which was apparently a bridge between science and hockey.
I sat down to play this really fun game to test your reflexes. Once you pressed start, you had to wait for the player to strike the puck and press the “Stop” button as soon as you saw moment. I think playing Roblox on mobile devices everyday has definitely helped me sharpen my reflexes.
After that, our field trip to MOSI was almost done. But we decided to check out this dinosaur-themed room–filled with a bunch of models of a few of the many species of dinosaurs from millions of years ago–before we left.
The first thing we played with was this interactive quiz game filled with multiple choice questions about dinosaurs, such as what a person would do if a T-Rex saw them and what event caused dinosaurs to become extinct. The best way that I can describe it was a fun pop quiz. Me and Goodmommy had a lot of fun guessing the answers. That was definitely a really nice detail that they added into the room to get your brain moving.
But that pleasant surprise wasn’t the highlight of the room. Just after, we looked at all of the gorgous models of ancient dinosaurs. I really loved how they all moved and made sound. There was even a description of the species right in front of each sculpture. Honestly, they made it look like each dino was looking at you, which was another nice touch to the room. Me being an art lover, I couldn’t help but wonder what they were made out of.
All in all, visiting this historical room was the perfect way to end this field trip.
As I’m quite sure you can tell, me and Goodmoommy had an amazing time on our trip to MOSI. I can’t help but be thankful to God that we were able to go. And it makes me even happier to be able to share the special moments of today with you all.
LET’S CHAT~Have you ever been to MOSI or another museum like it? If so, did you enjoy it?
Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! See you next time! ♡
