Children’s Museum Exhibit Encourages ‘Outside the Box’ Thinking



Children know that a box is never just a box. It can be a car, a house, a rocket…the possibilities are endless. Outside the Box taps into the imaginative minds of children to encourage “outside of the box” thought, innovation and exploration. An in-house exhibit, Outside the Box will inspire children to become creative thinkers while discovering the building blocks of math, engineering and technology.

Thinking Outside the Box has never been so fun. The new homegrown, feature exhibit at The Children’s Museum of Atlanta taps into the imaginative minds of children to encourage “outside the box” thought, innovation, and exploration. Through highly engaging props in three learning zones, activities, and lots of interactive fun, children can discover the building blocks of math, engineering, and technology.

In the Box Zone, visitors will use giant and small cardboard boxes, tubes, and cylinders to explore creative play and building as they use their imaginations to create castles, bridges, small towns, huge cities, and more. In Imagination Playground, they can also experience hands-on games and activities, featuring various
blocks, balls, and other items for engaging fun.

Children can also experiment at the rotating “Maker’s Space” and turn their dream inventions into realities, building everything from cardboard telescopes to linking up
circuits to make music. They can design a super-powered paper airplane – the sky is the limit. Grab the whole family and let their imaginations run wild.

Feature activities and programming during Outside the Box will change monthly, as each month highlights a new exhibit theme.
