The Magic School Bus is the basis for a multimedia project for children headed by Scholastic. The Magic School Bus characters and stories appear in television shows, books, board games, and CD-ROM computer games, always with a lesson to be learned and an emphasis on fun and understanding. In the show and games, magic is used to demonstrate science and technology. Often, schoolmates Arnold, Phoebe, Carlos, Mikey, Wanda, and the other kids in Ms. Frizzle's class are shrunk or transformed, to help them see everyday science from a whole new perspective. Of course, having a Magic School Bus to take the class to all sorts of fantastic places helps to keep the learning fresh and interesting.
In this episode, The Magic School Bus blasts off into space to give the class a ride through the solar system. Ms. Frizzle gets lost along the way, so the kids will have to do some exploring to figure out where she's gone. The class will investigate all nine planets through the course of this adventure. Detailed photography and full motion video help to illustrate important ideas. Ten topic-related games will keep players busy and nine different reports will help to bring everything the class learns back home to Earth. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
