Beat the Summer Slump with Smithsonian Digital Badges

Digital Badge Program Encourages Kids to Be Creative and Curious


June through August usually signal the summer "brain drain" for kids on vacation. With all the trips to the pool and countless ice cream cones, it is easy to morph from student to summer beach bum in no time. September is just around the corner - it's a good time to get back into the academic groove and Smithsonian has just the tools to do so.


The Smithsonian digital badge program stands above the pack in mixing fun with serious learning. The content of these badges is aligned to common core and national standards of learning. Smithsonian Quest badges have been incorporated state-wide in the New York education system, grades K-12 and are even used internationally. Researchers, curators, and educators work with Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access to develop these learning opportunities.
