Message From The Director
The importance of knowing your audience
Is there a “right” age range for CMEE to target? Since our audience is the defining characteristic of the Museum—more so than any collection or activity—and all of our programs and exhibits are in response to the needs of that audience, defining the “children” of the Children’s Museum is imperative for continued growth and success.
CMEE Jr. Science Mentors
A trio of volunteers returns from the FIRST Robotics Championship
We're pleased to share the news that three members of the CMEE education community have just returned from competing in the national FIRST Robotics Campionship in St. Louis, Missouri. Ben Klinghoeffer, Clara Oppenheimer and Natalie Brooks, along with the rest of the Pierson Robotics Team, placed 49th in their division over the weekend.
This trio has played an important role in not just the Pierson High School Robotics Team's success, but in the success in CMEE's science-centered programming. According to Clara Oppenheimer, a Junior Science Mentor who volunteered with Ciencia, a 20-week course focused on parent–child science education, both programs share remarkable similarities. "It's not just about learning science and technology," she said, "but seeing how we can use them to make the world a better place."
In The Community
Please welcome our newest Business Friends
We're happy to announce the addition of Balsam Farms, East End Tick and Mosquito Control, and Giordano's Collision to our ever-growing group of Business Friends. Support from these area organizations is vital in making CMEE an integral part of the local community.
As part of our efforts to increase awareness for both the museum and local businesses, we've added an additional benefit for those joining at the "Visionary" level and above. Participating organizations will be given special mention during radio ads promoting community events here at CMEE!
