Young Architects: Designing the Future

In this exhibit which highlights famous architects as inspiration and various block building media for a hands-on interactive learning experience, children will become young architects as they design for the future. A building’s design can often give us a clue about how it will be used. People live, work and play in buildings. Create your own masterpiece using pictures of architects and their iconic structures as an inspiration. Click here to view a printable rental brochure for Young Architects (.pdf)

Abracadabra: Everyday Magic

During their “magical” experience children of all ages will gain an understanding of the many things in our daily lives which appear to be mystical and magical but can often be explained through principles of math and science. Whether you are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, creating a chemical reaction using only your body heat, or decoding secret messages, you’ll want to visit before it all disappears! Click here to view a printable rental brochure for Abracadabra: Everyday Magic (.pdf)

Centuries of Childhood: An American Story

In Centuries of Childhood: An American Story, children will experience a personal connection to the stories of American history by learning about the lives of five historical children and their families. Each historical character will have its own distinct environment, complete with replicas of artifacts, home settings and traditional dress, making entire families feel like they are stepping back into another time and place. Click here to view a printable rental brochure for Centuries of Childhood: An American Story (.pdf)

I Feel: Understanding Emotions Together

Based on The Way I Feel Book Series written by Cornelia Maude Spelman, this exhibit fulfills an important need in the community by helping young children recognize and cope with their feelings, and by helping parents and caregivers better understand the inner emotional life of children. By initiating parent-child dialogue about feelings, this exhibit helps parents and children develop a vocabulary to identify, describe, understand and manage their emotions. Professional educators can use this exhibit to generate discussion to facilitate this learning process.
