PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (March 28, 2013) – The Imaginarium Children’s Museum of the North Country and SUNY Plattsburgh’s Cardinal Public Relations club will be announcing their Blast Boredom Campaign on Wednesday April 10 at 11 a.m.
The press conference will be held at the museum’s location on 4709 Route 9 where the speakers will educate the community about the Imaginarium's purpose, benefits, goals and initiatives.
Tim Maggio, president of Cardinal Public Relations, said working with the Imaginarium to announce this campaign has been a great experience for the students where they have used their public relations skills to give back to the community.
“The Imaginarium is an organization that provides so many opportunities for the Plattsburgh economy, quality of life and education. This museum is the definition of community service.”
Jennifer Meschinelli, president of the Imaginarium, said the museum hopes to inspire children to love learning through creativity, discovery and exploration.
“Our goal is to teach children the value of education through interactive learning,” said Jennifer Meschinelli, president of the Imaginarium. “If they continue to be bored, they will never see the significance of the knowledge being taught.”
The museum’s staff and volunteers have been working to provide well-rounded educational enrichment for children. They are dedicated to providing quality learning tools to help strengthen skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Maggio said we need to foster future generations to stimulate interest in STEM subjects.
“We are focusing on these subjects during this campaign. The press conference will be an introduction of some of the amazing things we have planned for the Plattsburgh community.”
