IDEA - Our Very Own Discovery Museum

Yesterday at our board meeting, we discussed an idea that I am very excited to share with you. For some time now, I've had a vision of Computer Labs for Kids opening our very own discovery museum. This facility would be something totally new and we would open the first one in California, the birth state of the internet and all things techie. 

I'm sure most of you have been to a Children's Discovery Museum. It's a place where kids can freely explorer and play with all sorts of science. It's designed so play IS learning. I've fallen in love with them since having a young little one. I love the openness and freedom granted to children to discover for themselves what something is by touching and playing with it. The very BEST way to learn!

The idea I have is for a Discovery Museum that wasn't possible until now (or will be in a few months).  iPad Pros. Robots you can program. Being able to paint with your fingers and no mess. Having the freedom to explore programming through exploration and play.

Mull this over and let me know if you would like to help get this started. I can use your help! My email is shira@computerlabs4kids.org.

Thanks,

Shira
