Change is in the air at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, thanks to a collaboration between SFCM and the Santa Fe Institute (SFI), funded by a grant from the Delle Foundation. The result — a collection of new exhibits entitled “The Science of Cities” — will be unveiled to the public from 3-6 p.m. Saturday at the museum.
In celebration, admission is free after 2 p.m., snacks will be provided by Dr. Field Goods Kitchen and DJ Eric Davis will be broadcasting live on KBAC 98.1.
In 2011, SFCM received a $150,000 grant from the Delle Foundation to increase its appeal to older kids in the 10- to 14-year-old age range and to strengthen learning in STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math. SFCM partnered with SFI to create new exhibits based on or inspired by SFI research.
The exhibits were designed and built by SFI’s exhibit partner, the Program in Interactive Technology, an intensive exhibit design class offered biannually by the New Mexico Highlands University Media Arts Department in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs. PICT is an immersive class that provides media arts students with the opportunity for real world museum experience.
