Madison, WI: KidShare

Madison Children’s Museum’s KidShare project creates digitally based experiences to promote scientific and cultural literacy for middle school and high school audiences. KidShare includes a Mobile Media Lab that will travel into neighborhoods and help youth create digital stories; a Digital Design Workshop where youth can “hang out, mess around, and geek out”; and Neighborhood Lens, a prototype digital interactive exhibit focusing on local stories, collected and designed by children, including a website for off-site engagement. MCM will collaborate with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Filament Games. The project is being developed in collaboration with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County, and youth will be involved in every aspect of its planning and design.
