The National Museums of Kenya welcomes and encourages children from all walks of life to visit our Museums. Our Education department organizes various empowering STEAM (STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking) activities for the young ones on scheduled dates throughout the year. By encouraging children to engage in STEAM playful activities, we empower them to identify and embrace “traditional arts and sciences with high performance technologies”.
Young Researchers Club
The Young Researchers Club was started in 1997 under the then Museum interactive programme. The idea was that students need to discover themselves and therefore was called the discovery programme. The National Museum of Kenya had a magazine called the Horizon. In the middle of these magazine there was a pullout called the Young Researchers.
It is from these that the club was developed, and further a magazine was also invented. In each issue of this interactive magazine is written around a specific topic whereby children learn in a playful way through experiments, which are simple and inexpensive.
The Young Researchers Club Targets Children between the ages of 8 to 13 years old. The aim is to offer interactive learning materials and activities to children with a view to enhance understanding of science and culture, and offer a better access to museum collection and expertise. The club focuses on activities and publications related to Cultural, Historical and Natural diversity of Kenya and how to conserve it.
