A Safer World in Which to Grow
A statement in response to recent acts of violence
Bronx Children’s Museum shares in the grief and trepidation that children, parents, families and communities are experiencing as a result of the numerous tragic events in our city, our state and across the country. As a society and a community, we are increasingly threatened by senseless violence inflicted upon innocent lives.

As adults, parents and caregivers, we must be the ones who actively use our voices to advocate for a safer world. Read our complete statement.
THIS WEEKEND!
Music Matters - La Música Importa
Did you miss the Museum's first Music Matters concert in Mill Pond Park this past Saturday? It was a ton of fun with live music, dancing and maracas! Don't worry, ¡Retumba! is back this Saturday, June 11th for another performance at 1pm! Join us!
Support for this program is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and through a Cultural Immigrant Initiative grant from New York City Council Deputy Speaker Diana Ayala.

Building Update: We're getting connected
The network of digital arteries and veins of the Museum's technology are being installed throughout the space this month. Miles of AV and IT cables will connect the main computer servers to the large screen displays, wi-fi access points, security stations, exhibit circuitry, speakers and projectors. Step by step the Museum space is coming to life as we prepare for our opening later this year.
Little Friends of the Museum Final Projects
Students in the Little Friends of the Museum Afterschool Program held at Roberto Clemente State Park have completed their assemblage and photography projects for the year. Each student put together a scene inspired by the natural environment and then photographed the scene with special lighting, highlighting shadows and emphasizing scale.The results are surreal and at times abstract. We are excited to see the imaginative results of the children's creativity.
Special thanks to Leslie Wright at NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (through a Connect Kids grant); the Department of Cultural Affairs (through a CASA grant from NYC Council Member Althea Stevens); Principal Pepe Gutierrez at PS 274; Ms. Marian O’Garro, Supportive Children’s Advocacy Network (SCAN) After School Director at PS 274; and John Doherty at Roberto Clemente State Park.

Kristin Scarola presenting at ACM's InterActivity Conference
Session attendees arrange cards to match appropriate evaluation methods to audiences.
Nicole Wallace, the Museum's Director of Education and Public Engagement, and Kristin Scarola, the Museum's Early Childhood Education Specialist Consultant, presented a session on Creative Evaluation Methods for Emerging Museums to attendees of ACM's InterActivity 2002 conference in St. Louis, MO this past May. ACM is the world’s foremost professional society supporting and advocating on behalf of children’s museums, and those who work at and otherwise sustain them. Attendees of the sessions learned traditional and inventive methods of acquiring feedback from visitors, community members and general audiences. Groups participated in an exercise of matching audiences to evaluation methods. Congratulations, Nicole!
