Thinkery Launches New Interactive Exhibit, Notion of Motion
Dedicated to growing impact in early learner and STEAM education for ALL Central Texas children, Thinkery celebrates major museum refresh with the Central Texas community
May 26, 2022 – Austin, TX – Thinkery, the philanthropic play-based STEAM learning hub of Central Texas, today announced its new exhibit, Notion of Motion, an interactive gallery inspired by the scientific wonders of Newton, Galileo and the brilliant minds of pioneers in STEAM.
Launched via a sneak preview event on May 26, Thinkery is thrilled to celebrate the major museum refresh – its first since the beginning of the pandemic – and invites the entire Central Texas community to come experience the swaying pendulums, spinning discs, dancing rope, musical wheels and hands-on STEAM experiments designed for children of all ages.
“We are dedicated to growing impact in early learner and STEAM education through dynamic experiences and innovative, research-based, state-of-the art STEAM exhibits,” said Andy Bell, CEO, Thinkery. “We enthusiastically encourage the Central Texas community to visit us – come see Notion of Motion in action and witness Central Texas children cultivate a lifelong passion for learning and discovery.
“For the last four years, we’ve partnered with Thinkery to bring high quality interactive exhibits to the children and families of Central Texas. It’s for this reason that we are proud to sponsor the Notion in Motion exhibit,” said Rhonda Paver, CEO and Founder of Stepping Stone School. “Our sponsorship aligns perfectly with Stepping Stone School’s mission to educate the whole child through the use of STREAM (Science, Technology, Relationships, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) principals which are infused into our curriculum for children of all age groups.”
The exhibit will officially open to the public on Saturday, May 28 as Thinkery rolls out its expanded summer hours. Thinkery will be open for General Admission visits seven days a week through the end of the summer.
Thinkery is a philanthropic organization and leader in play-based learning dedicated to providing STEAM learning experiences to ALL Central Texas children. Your visit to the museum will help support our many programs that drive access to STEAM community wide. Learn more at www.thinkeryaustin.org
