Sioux City Children's Museum announces final plans

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV)- Another hurdle has been cleared for plans surrounding the Children's Museum in downtown Sioux City.

The museum team announced that design firm Jack Rouse and Associates will be in charge of the final design for the eight thousand square feet of exhibit space.

In designing the museum, the firm will incorporate exhibits involving STEM guidelines, or science, technology, engineering and math.
The exhibits for children up to ten years old will try to help educational efforts to make STEM a priority. "We try to incorporate interactives that are centered around science, technology, engineering, and math to give students an opportunity to experience those in a more interactive environment, but also to give teachers nice, teachable moments throughout the experience," Colin Cronin, Sioux City Children's Museum said.

Plans for the $6-million museum have been in the works for a number of years, but the museum is projected to open in summer of 2015.
