Mega Making Returns

Mega Making image

Mega Making was designed by Stepping Stones in 2015 to celebrate creativity in our children! They will be the future engineers, designers, inventors, artists, teachers, scientists and the ones shaping the world - maybe in as little as 10 years from now!

Making at its core is the act of creating something. The current "Maker Movement" in the USA is working to inspire students to become creators of learning rather than passive consumers of learning. Mega Making takes a constructivist approach to learning by giving adults, children and students the materials, tools, support and creative freedom while providing an opportunity to build 21st century skills including Flexibility and Adaptability, Initiative and Self-Direction, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving and Creativity and Innovation.

The Mega Making exhibit experience is organized into five main areas: Art, Textiles, Construction/Woodworking, Tinkering and Book Nook/Future Ideas. Using real materials and real tools, young makers can explore art, textiles, construction and woodworking, tinkering and gadgets and a variety of materials, techniques and projects! Our staff members are here to help get you started, whether it’s working a needle and thread for the first time, practicing using wrenches and screwdrivers, tinkering with batteries and buzzers or picking out the perfect artist medium. Something for all ages, best for 5 and older. Children and their adults will surely enjoy a unique experience together!

Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea

image-Heart and Seoul

Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea is a new, cultural exhibit In which five modern-day Korean kids will open their hearts and invite you to take an intimate look into their lives through their diverse interests, customs and ambitions.

The exhibit will use traditional folktales as well as current day personal stories told by Korean children to engage visitors in learning about time-honored cultural values and life in South Korea’s highly urbanized and technologically-advanced.

Children and visitors will be able to explore gallery areas that recreate the settings that characterize the lives of typical South Korean children in Seoul, such as an apartment, classroom, taekwondo studio, and K-pop stage. Throughout the exhibit, these spaces will be embedded with traditional folktales and games to show how values like respect for parents and elders; the importance of scholarship; loyalty to family, friends and community; and hospitality are still an integral facet of 21st century Korean life.

Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea is part of the Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series, funded by the Freeman Foundation and administered by Association of Children’s Museum.
Created by the Children’s Museum of Houston with additional major funding has been provided by Samsung.
