San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum is excited to announce Storytime Inventing, a new interactive and educational exhibit for young children and their caregivers supported by Kid Spark Education.

Storytime Inventing, opening May 19, 2024, will feature an experience that celebrates Kid Spark Education’s innovative Rokenbok building materials and early literacy.

The new exhibit allows families to enhance their little one’s reading comprehension and problem-solving skills through interactive challenges inspired by some of their favorite children’s storybook characters. From constructing clever traps to engineering towers, this hands-on experience promises to spark creativity and foster essential developmental skills. Guests can take part in hands-on open-ended challenges at a workstation or enjoy a book in the quiet reading nook.

“We wanted to create an exhibit in partnership with Kid Spark Education that would inspire STEM skills through fun and immersive storybook challenges. Through specially crafted curriculum, we hope children enhance their reading and listening comprehension, vocabulary development, and problem-solving abilities. We ultimately hope to build foundational developmental skills that many kids will need as they continue with their education,” said Whitney Raser, Director of Education at San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum.

“We are proud that Storytime Inventing has emerged from our long-term partnership with San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum,” added Paul Eichen, founder of Kid Spark Education. “Uniting reading with hands-on engineering, Storytime Inventing takes families on imaginative journeys to spark curiosity, deepen comprehension, and foster a love for both reading and creating,” he concluded.

Storytime Inventing is included with Museum admission.
