Curiosity Club (Grades 1-6)
Kids learn best when they can interact and play, and there’s no better place to do that than The Iowa Children’s Museum! Curiosity Club offers screen-free learning opportunities for elementary-aged students as well as “brain breaks” for children to enjoy our exhibits and explore the world around them.
Curiosity Club has an open-ended, project-based approach. Museum educators will collaborate with students to create learning opportunities that they are interested in. Students will first decide what question they want to answer (define the learning goal) and then our educators will help them come to their own conclusions and facilitate learning along the way. This child-led approach teaches resilience and allows for students to take charge in their learning by asking questions, performing research, and experimenting. We focus on giving kids the information and tools they need; they get to learn in their own way! This mindset has been proven effective in both STEM-based and arts-based programming.
This drop-off program is designed to supplement formal instruction for children participating in homeschooling or online learning opportunities. Our “hands-on, minds-on” approach helps kids learn in many different content areas, with an emphasis on 21st Century skills like collaboration, communication, and creativity.
