A STEAM-Y Day at the Museum

Pitney Bowes Distribution 2017

On May 20, Reading Is Fundamental and Pitney Bowes hosted an afternoon of fun for families in Bridgeport, CT at the Discovery Museum and Planetarium. Children from pre-k to the 6th grade were invited to this admission-free event focused on promoting reading and science in our daily lives. Families had free rein of the museum and participated in scientific demonstrations, planetarium shows and a rocket launch! Kids tested their own building skills by creating cool lava lamps, floam and kites to take home. Along with the neat crafts, each child was able to choose a free, new book to take home and keep along with summer and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) themed literacy activities.
