Secular Thursday: Homeschool Travels

We haven't done any traveling yet, but I have always envisioned us being free to roam about the country taking our lessons with us.  Although there is this little problem with cash flow, and B being able to take off work.  Still, I think I've narrowed it down to a handful of "must-do" trips before Robotson is off on his own.  One of the first ones I'd really like to take is with Robotson to the World Science Festival in NYC.  I'd love to take the girls one day too, but they are still a bit young.  I think if I could work it out, Robotson would be able to get a lot out of it already.

One of the co-founders of the festival is Brian Greene.  He's pretty awesome. Seriously, if you want to know anything about theoretical physics and string theory, he's the guy to check out.  From his TED talk (see below), to his NOVA documentary, to his books:  The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos, and The Hidden Reality.
It was through keeping up with Brian Greene, and what he was up to, that I learned about the WSF.  I've wanted to go ever since.  Check out some of their past events aimed at kids and families.  Unfortunately, it's not going to work out again this year, but maybe next year.

How about you?  Got any trips plans that you dream about, or are making a reality?
