Mountain Top, formally Mountain Top Children's Museum, is looking for a forever home to continue to provide STEM & nature based programs, a hands-on children's museum, and enrichment opportunities for local and guest families in the mountain community!
In our new home we will have...
Museum Exhibit Space
A method based engineered environment designed for hands-on learning and engagement that promotes connections.
After School/Break Program
Throughout the academic school year, we will offer theme-based weeks emphasizing art, science, nature and STEM activities and outing to local enriching entities.
Kids' Night Out
An evening drop-off program in which MTE serves well balanced meals, conducts science based experiments and projects, and provides engagement with Museum exhibit components.
Science-based concept workshops brought to local elementary schools and child care organizations.
With a permanent space, the program will grow exponentially as MTE offers groups to visit for "in-house" workshop programming.
Strengthening Our Community
Enhancing community partnerships by integrating our youth and teen programs into local organizations such as Domus Pacis, Family Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC), Early Childhood Options, and building Hope, etc., to strengthen our community.
Providing family-friendly components to community-based events.
Within a year, a plan to develop a center that services young adults. The center will include life-on-life mentoring relationships with caring adults through community services opportunities, social activities and life skills courses.
Additional programming in the developmental stages will include:
Family Science Nights
