KID Inventors is a comprehensive multi-visit student program including field trips to KID Museum, in-class curriculum, and teacher professional development support. Students engage in a robust engineering design process, where they build technical skills, practice creative problem solving, and invent solutions to meaningful problems.
This program is aligned with both Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and key CCSS Math standards and can be integrated into a science class, STEM elective, or enrichment settings for elementary students.
KID Museum’s unique model leverages maker learning, which integrates STEM and project-based learning with creative problem-solving and social-emotional learning. Students build skills related to scientific inquiry, computational thinking, engineering design, coding, and technology. Most importantly, they develop agency and confidence as learners.
