Freshman Field Trip Reflections: Museum of Science and Industry

Freshman Field Trip Reflections: Museum of Science and Industry


On Wednesday, October 5th the Freshman Health class went on a field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. Four students shared their experience with us.

I went to the Museum of Science and Industry. We went there for a class project that we did in groups. There were 3-to-4 groups I believe. I was surprised on how much I remembered of the place, and how much it hasn't changed. It's been years since I been to the museum but yet I remembered everything. I enjoyed just being in the museum again. When I was younger I hated that place but I realized people have literally flew here to Chicago to visit it. I was so lucky to be there again. I learned that the human body was more organized than I expected. Everything in our bodies is in place somewhere neatly. And another thing was that the human body isn't bloody. The blood is in veins, not just floating inside the body. 


I went to the Museum of Science and Industry, I was able to visit most of the exhibits. I explored the museum, and the exhibit “YOU! The Experience” with my Health class.  What surprised me was the Storm Exhibit, all the things in there were really interesting. I liked the part where they had a little tornado. It was cool to see it move.  I enjoyed the field trip a lot of the museum, the area with planes and railroads was really fun since one of the planes you could go into. I learned about how small a fetus is and how it grows and changes in the body.


Yesterday, we went to the Museum of Science and Industry. It is located in Chicago near Lake Michigan. There were a lot of different sections and it was so exciting and fun. We had three small groups (7 people in each group) and looked at other interesting things: planes, ships, sport old cars, and tractors. There are different exhibits: FarmTech, Numbers in Nature, Transportations Gallery, Science Storms, and Genetics. We were enjoying  “YOU! The Experience”! It was so fantastic and unbelievable. We were surprised when we saw it. We like this museum!!


We went to the Museum of Science and Industry. The first thing we did once we got there was explore the “YOU! The Experience exhibit” with our Health class. What surprised us is how influential and sneaky advertisements can actually be at the “Your Mind: '' section of the “YOU” exhibit. Based on what font, background music, and characters you use can make a huge impact on how people will react to your advertisement. We also enjoyed the kitchen table part of the exhibit and getting to play with friends. Something we learned is that sleeping is important, because it helps you remember everything you learned that day during the different stages of sleep. 

Thank you to Nurse Mary, Mrs. Laughran, and Ms. Favia for making this exciting day possible!
