Children’s Museum of Tucson: Bodyology Tucson, Arizona

The Tucson Children’s Museum incorporated the essence of the Good to Grow leadership initiative into the playful design of “Bodyology,” the museum’s newest exhibit emphasizing the health and wellness of young children. Ganymede joined forces with the Tucson Children’s Museum staff and Nicomia design and fabrication to create an exhibit that engages children in active exploration, robust imaginative play, physical activity requiring both fine and gross motor skills, and thought-provoking discoveries that lead to meaningful learning.  One of the goals of “Bodyology” is to encourage visitors to make developmentally appropriate connections to the world around them, connections to their own experiences and to other exhibits in the museum.  Together, exhibit components contribute to creating an awareness of the body, choices regarding healthy foods, the need for physical activity and how these choices relate to the overall health and wellness of children and families.
