Outfitted with their brown digging shirts and Savannah hats, many mini-paleontologists trooped from the “classroom” to the “dig-site” at WOW (World of Wonders Science Museum) in Lodi.  These little “people who look for and study fossils” had just finished their kid-sized lecture and were ready to get into the dirt!

Lodi Ca LivingThe adventures opens with the WOW staff adding the physical meaning of “fossil” – “paleontologist  - and “excavate” to their working vocabularies.  After learning the meaning of the words, the class ranging in age from 6 toWorld of Wonders 9, were off to put into practice what the classroom had taught them.  In the building adjacent to WOW, the staff had prepped the digging field.  WOW held the “Digology” event the weekend of December 11 and 12.  Hour-long classes started on Saturday and finished on Sunday afternoon.  Each class size was about 20 members each and were mostly “sold-out!”

To learn more about the mission of WOW – click here - or make reservations for the next “ology” event,  “Insectology” slated for January 25, 2011.  You too could be part of the “on-lookers” as the participants learn to put “classroom” into “action.”

You have certainly generated some interest in this science museum. Your clever title drew ME in, as I bet it will will do others.

Thanks Jeff ... The kids seemed to be really engaged ... and some of the visiting adults as well!  Several of the exhibits have been donated by the local Board of Realtors ... a future blog subject.

Jack, as someone who loves rocks and fossils, I gotta say, what a wonderful way to educate little children!  Now I'm going to check out what they have for grown ups at the Smithsonian.  You've just inspired me.

Pat - To be an inspiration for you ... that's quite an honor!  As for WOW - the next feature is insects ... so in Washington ... you might check out Capitol Hill! (LOL)

Jack - Wow!, you are talking about an interesting WOW, which has a cool meaning. Interesting play of words, and, of course, an interesting leaning experience for participants in excavating.

Jon - You are always so kind.  The whole Holiday season has me a little off track - I'm neither blogging nor commenting as I should ... Thanks for being a leader by example ... I promise ... better this week!
