About KID Museum

A pioneer in maker education and experiential learning in the greater-Washington DC region, KID Museum is dedicated to empowering youth to become the innovative changemakers of the future. With a focus on elementary and middle school-aged youth, our program challenges the traditional STEM teaching methods by providing an engaging and powerful way to make sure students underrepresented in STEM fields find the joy of math and science through fun, maker-based learning experiences. As we continue to recover from the devastating effects of COVID, it is an especially important time to motivate and inspire our community to think creatively about how to re-engage youth and reimagine what learning can look like.
