Innovation is Child’s Play Drives 25th Annual InterActivity Conference.
From May 19th- 21st, 2011, the global children’s museum community will converge on Houston, Texas, for the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) InterActivity conference. Children’s Museum professionals are traveling from the United States, Canada, China, Jordan, Mexico, Quatar, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and United Kingdom to explore the vital role children’s museums have in building children’s 21st century skills and in connecting with audiences in new ways. The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Houston and then there will be special evening events hosted at the Children’s Museum of Houston, the Heritage Society, and the Houston Zoo.
The InterActivity 2011 conference will be hosted locally by the Children’s Museum of Houston (CMH), which recently was named the #1 Children’s Museum in the country by Parents Magazine. The InterActivity 2011 conference features science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teaching strategies, tactics for extending exhibit inquiry via mobile devices and thoughts on promoting risk as a necessary experience for personal and institutional growth. The ultimate goal of the InterActivity 2011 conference is to provide children museum professionals with education and resources to take back to the children and families in their communities.
