Any time is a good time to plan for a school trip and when it comes time for you to plan for another out of class trip for your students, the first thing that you must do is to find and charter a school bus for the trip. At School Bus Charter Rental, you do not need to look very far to find a suitable and trusted school bus for your next out of class trip.

Having taken care of the issue of renting a school bus, you will have to find a great learning experience for your students so that not only will they learn, they will also not fall asleep (except maybe on the bus!) during the excursion. Fun and interactive learning will keep your students alert and awake - well, most of the time, that is.

One place that will keep your students entertained is the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. This is one place that most, if not all, school bus rental companies would know. It is a popular choice for many educators and is located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is considered to be the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere, and offers a broad range of exhibits such as submarines, a real life United Airlines Boeing 727 that hangs from the balcony that you can’t miss seeing and there is also a full sized replica of a coal mine as well as covering topics like the planets, transportation and the human body.

Planning ahead before the tour around the museum is important. That way, you do not have to waste time deciding what to do first when you get down from the chartered school bus. Actually, it is pretty easy to plan the itinerary for the visit, as the museum is divided into themed sections, so you can choose and pick beforehand what are the sections that you would like your students to see. While there is a general admission fee to the museum, there are certain parts of the museum where you are required to pay extra to enter. So, it is best to check with the museum first what are the fees for group tours or school tours.

After having spent the day at the Museum of Science and Industry, you can opt to take your students in the chartered school bus for some light refreshments and food at one of the nearby food outlets. If you can’t decide which one to go or are unsure of any good eating places, your friendly and informative chartered school bus driver should be able to give you some really good suggestions.
