DESIGNING A MUSEUM
A museum is a place to explore, learn and create! Kidzu Children’s Museum in Chapel Hill, N.C. has teamed up with Kids Design Collaborative (creators of this website and the Design Dossiers book series) to bring hands-on design challenges to children of all ages.
The collaboration is a unique partnership between a non-profit group of professional designers and educators and an innovative children’s museum. It will give kids, teachers and parents the chance to experience the creative process from ideation through problem-solving, and the opportunity to tinker and build prototypes in Kidzu’s new Makery space.
The Kids Design Lab is just one part of an innovative community-based museum experience, whose design and programming is shaped utilizing the expertise of professionals — and children themselves!
