On Thursday, April 4, PNC Bank celebrated 15 years of their commitment to early childhood education through the Grow Up Great program in Orlando Science Center’s KidsTown exhibit. PNC staff brought the Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA), a traveling exhibit that provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about the importance of early childhood education while having fun with their children.
The educational exhibit allows parents and children to engage in unique, interactive activities — whether visiting a learning kiosk, imagining the future, or exploring the difference between a need versus a want. It's a great way to discover how everyday moments are learning opportunities. The hands-on exhibit offered educational games for children and their parents on two touch-screen kiosks. Activities included the “When I Grow Up” station, where kids dress up as different professionals and have their picture superimposed on an appropriate background.
In addition, parents took home an activity book and a Sesame StreetTM learning kit created for PNC as part of a continuing partnership. The kit included a magazine for parents and caregivers, children’s activity cards and a book, along with an original Sesame Street DVD that demonstrates how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
Congratulations to PNC on 15 years of Grow Up Great! Orlando Science Center is proud to be a partner with PNC Bank on early childhood learning initiatives.
