Prehistoric adventures await you

Disclosure

 

This past weekend we had the pleasure of heading back to the Discovery Cube Los Angeles and this time if was for a prehistoric adventure that is 65 Million years in the making.  The summer exhibit at the cube is called Dinosaurs Unearthed and it is awesome.  I’d like to give a slight warning that those the exhibit says 5-13 years old, there are loud noises and moving parts.

With that said, to me those loud noise and moving parts are all part of what makes this a must see display of realistic animatronic dinosaurs.  You will find life-size animatronic dinosaurs that roar, snarl and move.  Don’t worry they don’t actually walk around the area, they just move parts of their bodies.  What I found very interesting is the details on these dinosaurs and how they have updated the bodies to reflect the recent scientific research.  For example, A string of studies in the past decade have pointed to the potential widespread presence of either feathers or fuzz-like proto-feathers in dinosaur species (source: Smithsonianmag.com and BBC.com and more).

Beyond the amazing animatronics there is also the very detailed and informative information (that you have come to expect from the Discovery Cube) on what you are seeing to help with learning more about what you are seeing and hearing.  You will see real and replica fossils with details descriptions.  The interactive learning table is a must see.  My kids played with it for about 20 minutes, and we all know that is a long time in a kids life.

Another favorite and equally entertaining part was the fossil dig.  The kids get to pretend there are a Paleontologists, some might even learn this new word.  The amateur Paleontologists they use paint brushes to dust away the sand and uncover replicated fossils.

The exhibit is at the Discovery Cube Los Angeles from now until September 10th.

Combatting Classroom Bullying Through Chivalry

Combatting Classroom Bullying Through Chivalry

We all know that bullying has been an epidemic in our society for a long time now. It seems that there is always something on the news on the web about a child being bullied. But thanks to Medieval Times they have chosen to address this problem with a new show that combats bullying through chivalry.

Using characters from history 1,000 years ago, the castle teaches a modern message about compassion, understanding and respect.

What to know about the Show

bullying

I was so impressed with this show and judging by the children LOUD and enthusiatic response, it’s safe to say they enjoyed it too. At one point it was so loud in the arena I wasn’t sure if we were at  Medieval Times or a Justin Bieber concert.

  • The show includes six competing knights, real weapons, and beautiful horses.
  • The first half of the show involves bullying scenes and then you will be asked a series of questions about t what the right answer is.
  • The food is different than the regular Medieval Times show.  Guests will receive an oven-roasted chicken, garlic bread, sweet corn cobette, herb roasted potato, chocolate chip cookie and a water bottle.  Vegetarian meals are available upon request.
  • This would be a perfect field trip for a school or a boy scout/girl scout troop

Watch a Sample Of The Show

The First have of the show is all about bullying. they have the actors  perform a scene where someone gets bullied and then after the scene an announcer will ask the audience what the correct thing to do is.  It is very interactive and I could tell the kids liked being a part of the show. There is some really good lighting work in this show as well as beautiful horsemanship and acting. The whole performance was symbiotic and flowed extremely well.
