Marble Kids Museum
Today, one of our programmers, Michael, visited the Marble Kids Museum in Raleigh, NC to learn about our demographic. The museum is aimed at young children, and is designed to facilitate learning through play and interaction.
The Museum had exhibits about the farm as well as the grocery store, which where next to each other, but not explicitly connected. Overall, the museum was designed to let kids play first and learn second, learning through osmosis rather than through explicit lessons.
Susan Neuman is aware of this philosophy with teaching young children, and intends for our team to try a more directed and intentional approach. She believes that kids are far more capable than what we give them credit for and that challenging-but-achievable activities will encourage them to excel.
