Looking for something artistic and creative for your child to enjoy this summer? Then your family will be interested in Design Camp at Cooper Hewitt Museum.


Note: I was invited as media to this event. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

During a media preview at Cooper Hewitt, I learned more about the museum and what their Design Camp has to offer kids and their families.

The museum itself offers lots of interactive ways to learn about their art and design collection. The museum exhibits uses both visual and technology aids to draw viewers in.

I was really impressed by their interactive Pen, which lets you “collect” and “save” objects from around the galleries and the large touchscreen tables, that gives access to thousands of objects in the museum’s collection so visitors can view in the galleries, learn about its history, and related objects organized by design theme and motif.

Besides access to the museum, the Design Camp at Cooper Hewitt offers 4 week-long sessions where kids explore concepts of designs and art through challenges and gallery explorations. Each week, guest designers will provide campers with real-world design challenges and share innovative solutions.
