Your Vote Counts
Cast your vote to support your child’s social studies curriculum with a virtual visit to the Star-Spangled Center. “Your Vote Counts” offers students the opportunity to explore the voting process as they become legislators voting on real issues that are important to kids, such as should school go year round or should seatbelts be required on school buses? Students debate issues and then vote with results tabulated and shared in real time.

Design Challenge
This virtual field trip will come to your home live from The Magic House’s STEAM CenterEach field trip begins with an introduction to the design thinking process, so important to STEM learning today. Then the fun begins as families are given a design challenge to complete using just paper, glue and scissors.

Passport to Kenya
Book a family trip to Kenya!  The Magic House is taking students across the world, without ever leaving their home, as they participate in a tour of Kenya’s Kids in our World Traveler Gallery. Celebrate the vibrant Kenyan culture filled with longtime traditions and unique technology as families learn some Swahili greetings, explore a Kenyan town complete with a school, home, market and matatu – a colorful mini-bus, and then “fly” to a wildlife reserve to learn about lions, giraffes, monkeys, elephants and other Kenyan animals!
