At The Strong, students and educators alike have fun while learning. Play sharpens minds and boosts creativity. It helps people grow and keeps them healthy. When children play, they learn to solve problems, make decisions, express ideas, and recognize boundaries. Children who play do better in school and become more successful adults. All educational experiences provided by the museum are informed by the Reggio Emilia approach and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Learn more about The Strong’s educational philosophy.
