Factors addressed: Social Connections

Event description: The Museum Without Walls program is designed to offer fun, play-based learning experiences for children from infants to primary grade children. Your family will have a blast playing with a variety of creative exhibits and interactive play stations. Play with fiber optics, experiment with magnets, get your hands messy with shaving cream on the Plexiglass wall, stack gigantic foam blocks higher than your head and experiment with balloons and beach balls on the Bernoulli Blower (that’s a mouthful!), among other activities designed to encourage a joy of learning! Fairbanks Association for the Education of Young Children will also be participating in this event to celebrate the Week of the Young Child.
