Yesterday, as they do each summer, our summer enrichment camp students visit Stepping Stones Museum for Children, which is just down the street from the Carver Community Center. Stepping Stones is a hands-on children's museum for ages 10 and under.
The museum's interactive exhibit areas include: "Energy Lab"; a "Multimedia Gallery" with a theater, a state-of-the-art broadcast studio, and an 35-foot high-definition screen; "Healthyville", with exhibits about bodies and healthy living; "Family and Teacher Resource Center" where parents, caregivers and teachers have access to the latest and best information and programs about learning through play, early literacy, 21st century learning skills and the developmental needs of young children, helping them to facilitate a child’s learning – at home or at school.
The garden features three Kinetic Energy Sculptures that use local solar, wind and water energy to delight and instruct museum-goers. This colorful set of kinetic sculptures demonstrate simple principles of energy generation while creating percussive music.
Carver kids love Stepping Stones!
