Madison Children's Museum
Log Number: MG-252083-OMS-22
Madison Children’s Museum will develop a climate and resiliency framework, developmentally appropriate for children ages birth through 8, that focuses on empathy, resiliency, and the environment. A coalition of nine children’s museums and science centers will jointly develop and test the framework. Each institutional partner will use the framework to develop new programming, an exhibition, or educational content at their museum. Each institution will also commit to lowering their carbon emissions through activities such as buying wind power or installing a solar array. The museum will develop a toolkit that contains the framework and model educational programs and strategies to engage the public. The project will provide museum professionals with culturally relevant climate science education, training in the science of mindfulness and tools for its application, and support in creating locally based creative initiatives and climate solutions for their museums.
