Learn to pull a tablecloth out from under a place setting and more at KLUTZ® The Amazingly Immature exhibit opening at Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore May 20.
The exhibit features a variety of hands-on activities that teach STEM concepts. Build boomerangs to learn about elements of aerodynamics, fold paper rings to explore geometry and pull a tablecloth to learn about inertia. Kids of all ages can also learn how to juggle, snatch coins off their elbows as well as learn a variety of card tricks — including card throwing.
“Learning should always be fun! KLUTZ® Amazingly Immature is a perfect example that play, laughter and silliness are vehicles for learning,” says Nora Thompson, Director of Education at Port Discovery Children’s Museum. “We are connecting STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects to the real world through wacky, hands-on activities that stimulate creativity and problem solving while encouraging exploratory thinking. This type of exhibit motivates children to learn and makes subjects like physics and math more fun!”
The exhibit is based on the popular “KLUTZ® Encyclopedia of Immaturity Vol. 1 and 2” books from Scholastic Inc. The fun is best for ages 5 to adult and will last through Sept. 9. Admission to Port Discovery is $14.95 for ages 2 and older. For details visit the Port Discovery website, portdiscovery.org.
