The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center will design, fabricate, and install an exhibit designed specifically for 3 to 9-year-old children and their parents and caregivers. The exhibit uses research-based teaching methods to encourage conversations about diversity and foster dialogue about the people in their community. The exhibit will feature developmentally appropriate games, interactives, books, and activities. The museum will also provide suggested dialogue for parents to use with each activity, and education department staff will assist parents during busy visitation hours. Pre- and post-visit surveys will provide meaningful feedback for museum staff. The ultimate goal of the space is to provide families of all races a place to come together, play, and have meaningful conversations.
