FORT LAUD­ERDALE – Sum­mer is a great time to ex­pose young minds to sci­ence. Com­bin­ing it with art is a fas­ci­nat­ing ap­proach to en­hance the learn­ing process. To that end, the Mu­seum of Dis­cov­ery and Sci­ence has cre­ated new sum­mer pro­grams for chil­dren ages three to seven. Sprout­ing STEM - Grow­ing Up Great is in­spired by the PNC Grow Up Great® Les­son Center, an early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion re­source that helps en­hance hands-on arts and sci­ence learn­ing for young chil­dren. The pro­grams are sched­uled at 10:15 a.m. on Mon­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days in the Mu­seum’s Dis­cov­ery Center and are in­cluded with reg­u­lar ex­hibits ad­mis­sion.

“In to­day’s grow­ing global econ­omy, it’s crit­i­cally im­por­tant to in­tro­duce our youngest minds as early as pos­si­ble to math, sci­ence and the arts,” said Cress­man Bron­son, PNC re­gional pres­i­dent for south­east Florida. “Ex­pe­ri­ences such as th­ese set them up for fu­ture suc­cess, in­clud­ing pos­si­ble ca­reers as en­gi­neers, sci­en­tists, physi­cians and cre­ative en­trepreneurs.”

Through the mu­seum’s cre­ative ex­hibits and the hands-on early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion lessons, sup­ported by PNC Grow Up Great, hundreds of young chil­dren will learn about an­i­mals, col­ors and the senses. Founded by The PNC Fi­nan­cial
