The Children's Museum of the Upstate will create a re-imagined and upgraded "7 on Your Side Media Lab," a state-of-the-art exhibit dedicated to the creation of digital media content and exploration of issues relating to media literacy in the 21st century. The project will create a new resource for informal learning in digital media; activate the new exhibit through development and delivery of customized curriculum units that align with the specific digital media literacy goals of key community partners; and create a new setting for delivery of high-quality distance learning programs that improve local access to regional and national educational resources, particularly in the STEM fields. Success of the program will be determined through pre- and post- testing, visit observations, participant self-assessments, and interviews and focus groups with visitors.
