Sproutside at the Flint Children's Museum

To inspire a love for learning and awaken imagination through exploration and hands on play.


on August 27, 2010

Many of our little museum visitors enjoy critters–insects, lizards, bats, etc.–so we try to bring them to the museum as often as we can.  We are very lucky to work with the Michigan State University Extension-Genesee County to make this happen.

Darren Bagley, a 4-H Youth Development Educator from MSU-Extension, came to the museum yesterday with loads of bugs and creatures from the local river and water sources. He has been a guest educator at the museum many times, and we lovingly nicknamed him Darren BUG-ley for the day.  Darren spent the day in Sproutside, interacting with museum visitors and teaching them about the critters.

Even museum staff learned new things! Below is a water scorpion.
