Television, the Internet, Ipads, Iphones, Minecraft...there are so many distractions from quality family togetherness in today's world. I bet when you think of your best times as a family, they don't include screens! Akron Children's Museum will provide thousands of families with the opportunity to unplug from the virtual world and plug into each other. It will be a place to play, to explore, to learn and to create together...to BE together and build lasting memories as a family while taking advantage of the unique learning experiences the museum offers.
The educational programs at the museum will be an amazing resource for surrounding communities. As our public schools continue to push testing over experiential learning, the museum can give children of all ages the chance to learn through play and hands-on activities. From STEM workshops to art classes, from experiences designed for toddlers to those for middle schoolers, the museum is dedicated to engaging with kids by doing. So whether you have a baby or a tween, it's a place where your kids can have a fun, safe and enriching visit that has been designed to connect with them. Let them see how fun learning can be!
As a 10 year veteran of teaching, I put a high value on education and am thrilled about the educational opportunities at the museum, but at that's not the most important reason why we should support Akron Children's Museum. The most important reason is the children themselves. Let's show the kids of the greater Akron area that we have a heart for them. Together, let's build a place where we spend time focused on them, where we support their growth and development, where we play and learn. Friends, we need you to make this happen. I ask you to make a generous donation. Consider it an investment in the future of all the kids in your communities. Let's build this place together...for the children.
