Oklahoma Museum Network
The Oklahoma Museum Network, funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, is a statewide collaboration of five partner museums working together to provide hands-on discovery learning and science education resources to families, students and educators across the state. Five hands-on exhibits rotate among the OMN partner museums.
Tinkering - Now Open
Science is about HOW people find out new knowledge as much as it is about what people find out. When scientists investigate new questions or ideas, they engage in the lively process of science inquire. They plan and carry out investigations to test their predictions and, depending on what they find out, they may keep, revise, or toss out their old ideas. Very often, their discoveries lead to new questions and further investigation. This means that supporting young children's abilities to think and act like scientists is much more than telling them information or giving them science facts. It's also more than demonstrating or showing them interesting things.
