Impact Model

Here’s a look at KID Museum’s ABCs of Impact—our targeted approach to making a difference at the individual, school, and systems level for kids, families, and educators.

Activating interest

We put young people (ages 4-14) in the driver’s seat of their own educational experiences, and help them become more curious, creative, collaborative, and compassionate problem-solvers. Our live and virtual hands-on programs foster the “Mind of a Maker,” engaging kids and families in maker, invention, and STEM learning.

Building skills

We leverage partnerships with independent and public schools across our region to reach as many kids, youth, and educators as possible. Our embedded school programs grow teachers’ capacity to confidently use maker-based instructional approaches. In addition, they empower the next generation with the skills to succeed now and in the future, preparing them to navigate their educational and employment journey.
