Unlocking future interests begins at Imagine
Geoff Nunn, Museum Exhibit Developer
and Curator for Space History at the Museum of Flight

Flying an airplane. Running a restaurant. Caring for injured animals. Through imaginative play children can see what it’s like to be a pilot, restaurant manager, and veterinarian. Most of us haven’t experienced one of these careers but at Imagine, children have the opportunity to experience all three, and more. Not only fun, these experiences set the stage for a lifetime of learning in important STEM fields.
Flight shares his personal observations of how immersive experience and imaginative play that occurs at Imagine leads to a lifetime of learning.
Your donation today is inspiring the next generation of great thinkers.
Thank you for your contribution!

 


The power of play is a beautiful thing
Kristen Missall, Museum Board Member

The pandemic has been so hard on everyone, especially the children in our community. Children will be dealing with the impacts of learning loss, isolation, uncertainty and anxiety from the past 18 months for years to come.

By supporting Imagine, you are providing a safe resource where children can heal. Where children take control, reducing their anxiety and building their confidence. Dr. Kristen Missall, University of Washington Professor, College of Education and Director of School Psychology Program, and Imagine Children Museum’s board member, shares how the play is prevention.

We thank you for joining us this week for Champions for Children Challenge and making a donation supporting our youngest community members. Your gift today will impact them for a lifetime. Thank you for giving!
