Science Comes to Hudson Valley Children’s Museum


If you haven’t been to the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum in a while, it’s time to load up the kids and take them over to check out the new Science Center that opens this weekend at the museum on N Water Street on the Poughkeepsie Waterfront.

Science, technology, engineering and math–or STEM as it’s more commonly referred to–is the main reason the Science Center at MHCM was created: to encourage and support early STEM learning because as Lara Litchfield-Kimber, executive director of the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum says, “It is never too early to have young children investigate STEM concepts and content.”

The Science Center features several different hands-on experiences from WonderDome’s sensory exhibits of light, color and shadows to the science of physics at Link, Lift, Launch! to the spot I found myself challenged in, the ramp building station.

So, if it’s been a while or you’ve never been, the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum has come along way from its early days in the South Hills Mall.
