The Children’s Museum

This day was a long time coming. May 22, 2007: the doors of Jordan’s first children’s museum opened.

It was the realization of a personal dream of mine for Jordan’s children. It is a place where they can come together, play, laugh, and make new friends. A place where imaginations are lit, ideas sparked, and connections made. A place where children discover new ways of learning, and begin to approach challenges with curiosity and creativity, that they can apply to all aspects of their life.

Children who come through our doors, will learn by touching, thinking, digging, climbing, pulling, pushing, driving, smelling, flying, racing, building, sorting and solving, all at their own pace, among the colorful and interactive exhibits.

Imagine walking through the human digestive system, and exploring outer space in our astronomy dome, or discovering artifacts in an archaeological dig, and riding a bumblebee through a flower-bed?

But the fun of the children’s museum complements much broader goals for Jordan’s children—I am talking about our efforts to reinvigorate and reform public schools.

Just as we aim to encourage our youngest citizens to question, create and debate…so the museum stimulates young minds.

While we train our teachers to explore new interactive, child-centered methods…the museum helps them outline their lesson plans.

As we equip our classrooms with technologies so that our children can learn about the world, and the world can learn about our children; at the museum, our young explorers globetrot, and stamp their passports as they go.

And as we revise our national curricula to be more modern, balanced, and in tune with today’s world, one glance around our museum will assure anyone that we are on top of current trends.

In short, we are pushing the boundaries of education because we want our most precious citizens to grow up armed with the knowledge, skills, strategies, and values that will allow them to excel in a fast-paced and competitive world.

Come and visit; let us know what you think.

Majesty I would want to make them the complements of this her initiative that only a careful person to the topic of the education could have because educational and above all thus innovative! Because it inside introduces of an active distance of education the frequentation of the Museum to child measure who is practical a thus important one for the increase!
I have read that the entrance and also the various activities of the Museum are to payment, just that or thus also in order to contribute to own maintenance. But I would advise also to some days the year the free opening for the children who cannot themselves be allowed the access because they live in less favorable economic and social situations!
I am indeed content of this her idea! Once again me congratulation with she! Because much innovative and effective one, also the site is much easy one to consult and essential thing! Task that the idea has been indeed excellent!
I creed that her people cannot other who to be satisfied to have reigning like you! And I hope that she can continue to being thus also in future. Because, through reigning that they want well to own people they can make to improve a nation and only to make to feel happy for belonging to that state.
Not there is nothing better in order to face the challenges of the future that one to try to work in the instruction and the education!
Majesty I would want indeed to be more useful, because when within in this site indeed that there are many interesting arguments a lot, much engagement and much job! Unfortunately I become account also that my opinions and councils can seem of the useless meditations of a person who little knows the problems that she must face every day and for this I make excuses myself of the time that she loses to read my participations, but she makes she appeal to me to know that there is a person disposed to listen. By now rare virtue!
These acknowledgments for her activities are content of all that she is having, but task that is also a beautifull satisfaction that of giving many opportunities to who, without its ideas and activity, could not never have had the possibility to redeem itself! Thanks for this!
Task that also this her idea has opened for her people new frontiers in order to construct a better nation! Yes because this museum for children could be conceived like an important aggregation point!
Auguring them good job!!! Me excuses also for my English!!!
The heart salute!!!
