  • Each exhibit meets Mississippi state standards and offers dynamic hands-on exploration in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).See Educator Guide to STEM Related exhibits.
  • The exhibits promote critical thinking while fostering playful collaboration and exploration.
  • These exhibits are available all year long!

Imagination Playground
Mobile large blue foam block-based play system that stimulates children’s minds and bodies through active, creative play for construction. Note: this exhibit will require a 20×20 space for setup.

 

Rigamajig

Rigamajig is a new large-scale building kit designed by Cas Holman for hands-on free play and playful STE(A)M learning. This collection of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and rope allows children to follow their curiosity through play while learning 21st century skills. There are no right or wrong answers; the act of playing and building is the goal, not the finished product. Note: this exhibit will require a 20×20 space for setup.

 

Stuffee
Health ambassador, from The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Stuffee teaches children the function of the human body, the importance of eating healthy and fitness, medical questions, and organ and tissue donation. Stuffee is a 7′ foot tall “doll” with a giant zipper down the front that when unzipped, children can view and hold his internal organs: colorful soft reproductions of the hearts, lungs, intestines, etc.
