Help Us Grow: Donate to the CCM
CCM provides a unique atmosphere for children to discover and explore their world through direct experience. Exhibits emphasize real object manipulation, multi-sensory learning, creative problem solving, and interpersonal interaction. A highlight for many visitors is to touch some of our animals – a corn snake, a domestic rabbit, a red-eared slider turtle, and others. Our programs cover an ever-expanding range of topics in the arts, sciences, and humanities. “De-construction” fits children with safety goggles and hand tools to take apart (non-working) appliances to find moving parts inside. They go on a Movement Scavenger Hunt around the building to find examples of such movements as: swivel, slide, and dangle. Lastly, they use cardboard and other on-hand materials to construct a model for a machine of their own invention. Often, our activities incorporate intergenerational connections so that adults can impart wisdom and encouragement to the young and children can engage their grown-ups in the ageless joy of play.
