Back in August, Holland Museum held its grand opening of the Smithsonian Institution’s Spark!Lab — an interactive invention space allowing families and children to collaborate, create, test, experiment, explore, invent and problem-solve.
“Holland’s history is full of innovators, entrepreneurs and inventors,” said Katie Baker, development & communications manager for the Holland Museum. “There is much to be learned from our past successes and to continue to build on them for the future. Spark!Lab is an ideal fit for the Holland Museum because it showcases Holland’s history of innovation and invention, but also demonstrates how it can be part of Michigan’s future as well.”
Visitors can work together on STEAM-based activities: science, technology, engineering, art, history and math. These experiences and activities allow children to develop skills and confidence, all while driving them to success day to day and for the future.
Spark!Lab offers three to four rotating activities every three months, allowing guests to experience new tasks and activities every time they visit. Entry into Spark!Lab is free with museum admission and is included with the Holland Museum membership packages
