Kids: Dylan's 2012 Field Trip - Part 1 - Meralco Museum

September 22, 2012

Today, it is Dylan's 2012 Field Trip.  Though it was hard for him to wake up so early, once he found out that today was his field trip, he got up in no time at all.  They were going to have a full day ahead so it was essential to start out early.  The assembly time was at 630 AM and the first stop was going to be at the Meralco Museum.  Here he is in the bus looking a little sleepy and there we are at the parking lot of Meralco in Ortigas.  Apparently, we arrived early and they were still setting up.  That was T. Karen with us.

I honestly didn't have any idea what to expect when we got inside.  But, I wasn't disappointed.  There was a lot you can learn about electricity and the history of Meralco (which they showed through a film showing although I don't think the kids have any appreciation for that).  The kids loved the interactive parts of the museum, like where they can hop on and off on the tram, generating power through manipulation of the exhibits and turning the light switches on and off.

The highlight for Dylan was being able to ride in the Meralco bucket truck.  He also loved taking pictures with the huge trucks around the parking lot :)

Here are some of the pictures we took while we were there.

After the Meralco Museum, we all proceeded to the Dolljoy Museum in Pasig see next post.
