Gulf Coast Exploreum presents PNC Grow Up Great--"Learning is All Around Me!" Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 26, 2015
The Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center, 65 Government Street, Mobile is offering two opportunities for parents and caregivers to visit PNC Grow Up Great--"Learning is All Around Me!" Mobile Learning Adventure. The MLA is a traveling exhibit that shows adults the importance of early childhood education while they engage in fun activities with their children.
A part of this $350 million, multi-year initiative that began in 2004 to help children from birth to age 5 attain success in school and life, PNC Grow Up Great includes interactive kiosks. The "What I Want to be When I Grow Up" station allows children to dress up as different professionals and have their pictures superimposed on the appropriate background.
In addition, parents can take home activity books and learning kits that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
The Mobile Learning Adventure times are Saturday, April 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Sunday, April 26, noon until 4 p.m. The event is free with Exploreum membership or paid general admission.
