The Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) is keeping up an active online presence despite its doors being closed. The museum is sharing experiments, activities and inside looks at their exhibits through its daily virtual learning program that they broadcast on their Facebook page. MCM is committed to improving the early literacy development of children and is a significant educational resource for the children of Mississippi. All of the programs focus on three main initiatives: health, literacy, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math).
From scanning through the Facebook page, parents can find tons of inspiration for educational activities that they can do with their kids at home. Leveraging the power and reach of social media, MCM has continued to provide meaningful experiences for kids.
“Our children and families need play, learning and joy now more than ever. In response to this crisis our talented team at MCM is reimagining our hands-on learning experiences as virtual ones. These online programs are enabling children and their care givers to have meaningful inquiry-based learning experiences from the safety of their own homes,” stated Susan Garrard, President and CEO of Mississippi Children’s Museum.
