Bring the Museum to your classroom or community space

BCM’s traveling ‘Museum on the Go’ collections cases and ‘Mobile Block Lab’ can be brought to your classroom or community space. Research shows that block play supports critical social and cognitive skills in early childhood – everything from team-building, creative thinking and problem solving, to math, spatial reasoning and pre-engineering concepts. Even more exciting, children, their parents, and caregivers enjoy and are excited by bricks, blocks and building materials of all kinds.

Mobile Block Lab

Mobile Block Lab brings Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s signature early childhood STEAM play space (science, technology, engineering, art and math) to you. As part of its BCM in the Borough initiative, Mobile Block Lab offers a semi-structured program using design challenge prompts and tons of blocks, including David Rockwell’s giant blue Imagination Playground blocks, Magna-Tiles, Tegu Blocks, and Kapla Planks.

Mobile Block Lab allows learners to:

  • Develop language and cognition skills and social-emotional development by sharing space and blocks with peers during semi-structured design challenges
  • Develop language and cognition skills by working with their peers to build structures
  • Strengthen bonds between children and their caretakers as they communicate and collaborate with each other in the space
