Spatial Games Club
Ages 3 & Up, with Adult*
Meets in Creation Station
This Program is Free with Museum Admission
Our spatial intelligence, or how we visualize shapes and their relation to each other, is tied to academic achievement in math and science … and can even help with reading. Plus, it’s fun to practice! Join Dr. Jamie Jirout and other researchers from UVA’s Curry School of Education each week to play games and do puzzles involving spatial learning.
*All visitors are invited to participate, but an adult guardian’s consent is required for children to be included in any research studies associated with these playgroups.
Research Highlight: Why do spatial skills matter? Children with higher spatial skills are more likely to become scientists or engineers, and these skills are used in all STEM domains. More
