Build it square, build it strong! Build it curved, build it sticky! Build it together, build it big! Build it WOW!
In the revamped Build It WOW! Exhibit, children have the opportunity to learn how different shapes form the basic building blocks of more complicated structures. At different building stations, children can learn about geometry, spatial relationships, balance, and stability. Visitors can also explore different ways objects can connect to each other. While creating, children practice the skills of imagining, planning, executing, and modifying ideas which sets an early foundation for STEM learning.
The Build It WOW! Exhibit is on display through September 2017 and is generously sponsored by Anne M. Larsen, State Farm Agent.

It's summertime in beautiful Colorado! Kids are out of school, the days are long, and the weather is warm. During the summer, it's important - and easy and fun! - to include reading and learning wherever the summer takes your family.
Reading is one of the most important things children and teens can do during the summer to keep their skills sharp for the next school year. Reading just 4 to 6 books helps keep kids and teens from losing the reading ability they gained in the last school year. And, reading and learning over the summer can be so much fun!
Colorado's 261 public and military libraries - at least one in every county - are an excellent place to start. All of these libraries offer free summer learning programs that encourage kids and families to read and learn for fun over the summer with engaging events, ideas, and experiences. Children that feel that reading is fun tend to read more often, so summer programs like these that help make reading enjoyable and social are most successful. And kids and teens that choose their own reading materials tend to read more, and they'll have plenty of great options at the library.
And there are other great learning opportunities to literally check out there, too; your family can borrow a Check Out Colorado State Parks nature backpack with a pass to any Colorado state park, binoculars, field guides, and ideas to enjoy your nature experience, all for free. Check out the backpack for a week at a time for unlimited outdoor learning fun for the whole family!
Check out your local public library (use this directory to find one close to you) to see what fun events and activities are available for kids and families in your community, and sign up for the summer learning program to join the more than 182,000 kids, teens and adults that participate each year in their local library's summer program each year for fun, sun, and learning!

An exceptional collection of "art that is felt with the heart." A to Z Global Folk Art honors everyday art that embodies and reflects cultural identity. "We are excited to showcase a variety of eclectic art from local cultures around the world," said Heidi Cross, Chair of the Museum's Board of Directors. "Unlike items that are mass produced, folk art conveys the personality of the craftsperson as well as the artist's culture and community. It is the art of the everyday by people with a creative spirit." The remarkable exhibit features global folk art from over 20 contributors in Northern Colorado. Examples include a tapa cloth purse from Fiji, a Hindu goddess from Bali made from antique coins and gilded tree bark, and a Mikoshi puppet head from the mountains of western Japan. Admission: $5 adults, $3 seniors/students, & $1 youth.
