Santa’s Little Helpers
For those of you who have had the opportunity to experience MOSI’s Idea Zone, you are aware of the exciting and creative ways we allow children to learn, build, and create in this “do-it-yourself” laboratory. This holiday season, Santa will be taking over Idea Zone. The innovative design studio has been transformed by Santa into what is now a Christmas workshop. The space will be an opportunity for visitors to give back to their family this holiday season with gifts that come from the heart. Idea Zone will allow Children to use the creative technology lab as a place to make stocking stuffers for everyone on their list. MOSI’s favorite technology playground is Santa’s workshop for all of his little helpers to spread the Christmas spirit.
Personally, I can’t wait to head down to Santa’s work shop and create a gift for my brother using this 3-D printer. Since my brother loves to fish so much, I will design a fish on the computer and when I press print, the printer in the picture will create a 3-D plastic fish!
I am most excited for this event because I get to see children giving back. Kids tend to get caught up in their own Christmas lists and they often forget about Mom, Dad, Grandparents, or anyone else that deserves some holiday cheer. Santa’s Workshop in Idea Zone will remind kids about the important people in their lives and allow them to create something special for the ones they love. I can’t wait to see all of the creations coming out of Idea Zone this holiday season. Santa’s Workshop will be available with the purchase of a regular admission ticket and will last from now until December 31st. Although it is only November, Christmas will be here before you know it!
