Betty Brinn Children’s Museum Combines Maker Experiences and Arts Education to Inspire Students Starting In-person Classes at Milwaukee Jewish Day School
MILWAUKEE, WI – (September 8, 2020) — The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum today announced a partnership with the Milwaukee Jewish Day School (MJDS) for Museum educators to deliver in-person instruction to MJDS students this fall that combines the Museum’s STEAM-based maker projects with traditional art education.
“We are thrilled to work with the Milwaukee Jewish Day School to expand our educational mission by offering on-site programming for their Jr. Kindergarten through 8th grade students that blend our dynamic makerspace workshops with hands-on art instruction,” said Museum Executive Director Brian King. “Our educators are excited to offer students face-to-face programming that encourages them to experiment, create and gain knowledge in science, technology, engineering, art and math.”
Betty Brinn Children’s Museum class instruction at Milwaukee Jewish Day School started Sept. 1 and will continue through mid-January 2021. The Museum is presenting its signature maker education programs, including rocket design, stop-motion animation, nerdy derby crafting and wind tunnel construction, along with exploration of the Formal Elements of art.
