Little Farm House Exhibit

September 1, 2020 - February 28, 2022

Creative Discovery Museum (CDM) will fabricate the Little Farm House Exhibit (LFHE) for children ages 0–5 in order to offer their youngest visitors age-appropriate, hands-on, STEM-focused learning opportunities. Since access to high-quality early learning activities is important for brain development and long-term academic success, Chattanooga 2.0—the community’s initiative to transform public education—places a high priority on improving both access to and the quality of early learning environments. The museum will use various methodologies for evaluation, including time and tracking, behavior mapping, observations using an outcomes checklist, and interviews. To gain continuous feedback and input on the LFHE project, CDM leverages partnerships with multiple local organizations and an LFHE Advisory group.
