Museum In A Box....Putting Museum Collections Into Our Students Hands!

I can't wait to share what I learned about this week during the Computers in Libraries Conference in Washington D.C.  

I went to a presentation where Smithsonian was sharing their amazing educational resources.  She also shared something that really caught my attention and I couldn't wait to dig into this one.  

It is called Museum in a Box.  

According to their websiteMuseum in a Box puts museum collections and expert knowledge into your hands, wherever you are in the world.  
Museum in a Box focuses on actually touching objects in order to make connections as they learn about these museum artifacts within the collections.  
Watch this video to learn even more.  

Museum in a Box gives our children access to artifacts from museums around the world.  This gives them a chance to connect with learning in such a powerful and meaningful way.  

Someday they even hope to let all of us curate our own collections.  Now wouldn't that be fun!
