For the first time in 30 years, Seattle's teachers went on strike on Wednesday. Unable to come to an agreement with the Seattle School Board, they'll remain on strike today as well, potentially into next week as they try to negotiate a new deal. That may put some parents in a bit of a pickle. All of a sudden, Seattle has a whole bunch of kids who are doing not very much learnin'. However, there are learning opportunities all around us in Seattle and the surrounding area, so long as you're willing to pay some entry fees. We've gone ahead and mapped out a bunch of museums, exhibits, theaters and parks that could provide Seattle's kids with ample opportunities to learn while they wait to find out when they'll be headed back to school. Be forewarned, some of our options are way more fun than math class.
