Open Playground Tips!
Open Playground is for kids age 4 to 14. It is a relaxed, casual atmosphere for kids to build, design, code, and interact with technology. There is no plan ... kids decide what they want to do for the two hours they are here. We have gathered some of the latest educational technologies at Kid's Innovation Playground and we SHARE with you!
There are three specific engineering areas at KiP:
The Builders' Room has a Lego Wall, Magnet Wall, and over 30 different choice kits to design, engineer, and build. Flexible seating makes this a comfortable environment to be yourself!
The Makers' Room has table seating. Code a robot using Osobots, create with Squishy Circuits, or intereact with Osomo. We have 20 items you can ask for and innovate during your visit.
The Test Arena has a smooth rubber mat that you can test out your coded creations, create a maze with the Sphero Mini, or sit back and take a trip with theOculus Go VR Goggles.
Because we are starting small, you need to reserve your time online under general admission. $12 for first child, and $8 per additional family members, for up to 2 hours. A parent or guardian needs to stay with their children age 4-8. TWEENS and TEENS age 9-14 are welcome to participate unaccompanied with a permission slip. We invite parents to enjoy some quality time engaged with your child, or relax in parent seating located in each of the areas. We are a work in progress, but we know your kids are going to LOVE Kid's Innovation Playground!!!!!
NOTE: Open Playground is designed for kids ages 4 to 14. We ask that you not bring children younger than four years old to KiP. It is not designed developmentally for them, and with small parts and electronics, not safe for them. We really want our focus and yours to be on your school-age child! Thank you for your understanding.
