imagiFAB opens Wednesday at Marbles Kids Museum, a new exhibit for all ages and abilities to explore science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) concepts.
The genesis of the exhibit began in October 2017, according to a press release.
The creation also involved more than 18 months of “research, community engagement, activity testing and prototyping to create an inclusive exhibit for multigenerational STEAM play and learning.”
The result: Four areas of hands-on activities:
Create, with a collaborative community paint wall.
Make, with tools, woodworking stations and found-object crafting.
Build, Constructions with blocks and Nuggets (Nugget, headquartered in nearby Butner, provided financial support to the exhibit).
Animate, where kids can “upload original artwork into a digital canvas.”
