Betty Brinn Children’s Museum Introduces New STEM Education Science CITY Exhibit presented by Kohl’s Cares

On July 3rd, the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum will introduce Science
CITY, a new feature exhibit dedicated to STEM (science, technology,
engineering and math) education presented by Kohl’s Cares.
Science CITY reflects the Museum’s commitment to providing
experiences that foster a child’s interest in STEM subjects that are
important for academic success and help them build the 21st century
skills – collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem
solving – that will be key to living, working and learning in the
future. Science CITY was designed to be part warehouse, part
superstore, part clubhouse, and part laboratory, and was developed using
early learning and state and national academic standards, including Next
Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Science CITY presents an immersive setting where children and
adults explore the fundamental science principles that shape our world,
showcasing that STEM is everywhere. Interactive learning stations
include a giant periodic table of elements, an engineering challenge
inspired by the “Three Little Pigs,” coding activities integrated into a
multi-level climbing structure, hands-on examples of the six simple
machines, demonstrations of “invisible forces” (magnetism, electricity,
sound and air), and a repurposed flight simulator with video clips about
astronomy, space travel and research. Digital installations, reading
materials, displays of natural materials and graphics, presented in both
English and Spanish, highlight STEM-related research, jobs and hobbies,
and introduce the work of some of the most influential inventors,
scientists and innovators – Edison, Einstein, Newton, and others. The
area also suggests additional resources for curious, creative kids and
adults who want to learn more.

“We are tremendously grateful to Kohl’s for enabling the Museum to
develop Science CITY, which reflects our shared commitment to
strengthening STEM education for children in our community,” said Betty
Brinn Children’s Museum executive director Fern Shupeck. “The exhibit
will serve as a spectacular resource for families and students, with the
ability to spark a child’s interest in STEM, fostering their academic
success, cultivating their skills, and creating opportunities for them
to consider vocational programs and career directions that will
contribute to the future of our community’s workforce development and
economic goals.”

“We are honored to present Science CITY as an opportunity for
Milwaukee families to explore STEM and learn together in a fun and
engaging environment,” said Jen Johnson, Kohl’s senior vice president,
corporate communications. “Kohl’s is proud to support the Betty Brinn
Children’s Museum and its dedication to the positive development of
children in our community,”

The exhibit is free with Museum admission. The Museum is open Monday –
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon until 5 p.m.
Museum admission is $8 per person and $7 per senior (adults older than
55); children younger than 1 are free. More information is available at
or by calling 414-390-KIDS (5437).

This donation is made possible through Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s
Cares®, which sells children’s books and toys and donates 100
percent of the net profit to charitable initiatives nationwide. Since
2001, Kohl’s and Kohl’s Cares have committed more than $100 million to
organizations in the Milwaukee area.
About the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum
The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum is a private, nonprofit organization
dedicated to providing educational resources that promote the healthy
development of children. The Museum’s mission is supported by the
development of age-appropriate, hands-on exhibits and programs for
children, and adult education programs that focus on early childhood
brain development, learning styles, parenting skills and how the Museum
environment can be used to promote a young child’s cognitive, emotional,
social and physical growth. The Museum’s Maker Initiatives were
established in 2013 to expand the organization’s core learning-by-doing
mission to the larger community through year-round maker programs at the
Museum, community outreach, the annual presentation of Maker Faire®
Milwaukee, and the establishment of its off-site maker hub, Brinn Labs,
