Outside the Box!

Outside the Box

Children know that a cardboard box is never just a box. It can be a car, a house, a rocket… the possibilities are endless! We at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta seek to inspire children to become creative thinkers while discovering the building blocks of math, engineering, and technology. Here, Young Makers can use cardboard to create items that will help them play, explore, measure, and think Outside the Box!
