OKLAHOMA CITY – Sporting bright green graphics and rocket engines at the rear, an innovative “museum on wheels” is set to make its debut at Science Museum Oklahoma, Tuesday, December 30. Science Matters, a new discovery-based mobile museum funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, encourages students to explore science as they engage in numerous activities found within its walls. The museum will focus its travel to schools in rural Oklahoma, providing discovery learning opportunities in areas of the state where other museum facilities do not exist.
“It is our feeling that every child benefits from dynamic hands-on learning experiences especially in the sciences,” says Steven Anderson, President of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. “And, it is our hope that when this amazing mobile laboratory rolls into a small town, the experience will help spark a child’s desire to learn for a lifetime.”
The mobile museum includes 10 different hands-on exhibits and activities that combine to provide students with experiences to which they may not have access otherwise. The participatory nature of the exhibits also challenges students, creating a fun, playful environment. Students can match wits in a challenge of speed and ingenuity, orchestrate a symphony of sound with bubbling flasks, and dodge lasers while attempting to decipher a secret computer code.
