Top Nerdy Ten: Magic School Bus Edition


By Rachel Cheng, (@iamrachel)

It’s another Top Nerdy Ten! In case you haven’t heard the exciting news (seriously, brace yourself) Netflix is in the process of rebooting beloved children’s series The Magic School Bus. The Magic School Bus 360 is slated to have 26 episodes that will be released sometime next year. So we’d like to throw it back and count down our top ten favourite field trips taken by The Frizz and her class from the original 1997 series. So strap on that seat belt because it’s time to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!

10. Gets A Bright Idea

I was one of those kids who wanted to try out my own version of the Pepper’s ghost illusion.

9. Under Construction

Engineering at its best. I always knew that bobby pins were super strong.

8. Takes A Dive

Symbiosis. I swear I learned more from Ms. Frizzle than I have from any textbook.

7. Makes A Stink

I’d really like one of those laser dissociation of molecules contraptions for Christmas.

6. Plays Ball

Who knew that Newtonian physics could be perfectly explained with baseball metaphors?

5. Kicks Up A Storm

Shicka, shicka, kaboom! Who doesn’t want to be a superhero that controls weather?

4. Gets Programmed

A gazillion gigabyte hard drive AND a floppy drive? Yes please! Wait, do kids these days even know what a floppy is?

3. The Busasaurus

Time travel. Now that’s a field trip.

2. Makes A Rainbow

That is the most epic pinball machine created.

1. Gets Lost In Space

The only solar system open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 😉

What were your favourite Frizzle field trips? Leave a comment below. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to binge watch all four seasons of the original series on Netflix (or raid my VHS collection).

‘Til next time,
