Young visitors to ASU Museum have the chance to explore the construction trades as they experience Building Buddies (now through September, 2016). Building Buddies is designed to enable kids to have fun while engaging in pretend work at a mock construction site. There, they will utilize engineering and design skills to paint, landscape, brick-lay, garden, run plumbing pipe, and more.
Building Buddies has been developed by the Oklahoma Museum Network, a statewide museum partnership operated by the Science Museum of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Museum network was established through a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. ASU Museum is a member of the Arkansas Discovery Network, also funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
