KID Museum inspires the next generation of innovators by giving them the tools, mentoring, and space to bring their ideas to life. Hands-on programming promotes creativity and STEM learning – as well as persistence, resourcefulness and collaboration – all essential skills for future success. Since late 2014, more than 10,000 people have visited this creative “makerspace” as part of a school program, group visit, or drop-in activity. Every day, kids explore a range of 21st-century tools and materials, including 3D printers, a woodworking shop, an electronics lab, and an animation studio. Designed for ages 6-14 (when creativity levels sharply decline), hands-on activities integrate art and world cultures, sparking imagination and a sense of global citizenship. Alongside professional educators, teaching artists, and scientists, trained high school “apprentices” lead the programs and serve as role models for the next generation of creative thinkers. Each year, an additional 30,000 people attend KID Museum’s free community festivals and outreach events. Your support brings science, technology, and culture to life: a powerful gift for us all.
