Children are taken into a world of creativity, fun and imaginative play through exhibits that are able to teach without the test.
A press conference was held yesterday at the Imaginarium Children’s Museum, where they released future plans and asked for community support.
“Today we are here to take to take the next step in our journey. Today we are asking the community to help make this happen,” says President of the Imaginarium Children’s Museum, Jennifer Meschinelli. “We hope to harness the natural curiosity in the areas where American children are far behind in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and math.”
Creating an outlet where families can learn, grow and play together is one of the main priorities of the children’s museum.
“This facility is a marvelous addition to our community,” said Martin Mannix, Plattsburgh Town Councilor. “I am particularly struck by the mission of the organization which is to inspire the love of learning through creativity, discovery and hands-on exploration. Can anybody have a higher goal than that?”
The children’s museum is looking to expand to a 40,000 square foot building in the future. They would also like to add more exhibits where kids can play, learn and blast boredom.
