Summer Fun Day #81: Design a video game at the Baltimore Museum of Industry

Kids are sure to love the “Video Game Wizards – Transforming Science and Art into Games” exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, where they learn the process of creating a video game.

BMI3The exhibit aims to show kids the importance of learning the science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills needed to go into the video game industry.

By making their own games, kids learn to be creative problem solvers, and they get to test out their products at the end of the exhibit. They can even share it for family and friends on the exhibit’s website.

The newest exhibit, REINVENTION: The Work of Chris Bathgate, demonstrates how modern and traditional machine work can be created into artistic expression. Your kids will love his interactive models.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for children ages 7-18, and free for children 6 and younger.
