Challenge

Can you imagine that the quarantine life the world living because of COVID-19 crises is the usual life of some, or actually is way better? The crisis and the war in Syria had many negative effects on refugee children, including long out-of-school periods and unstable and difficult living conditions. On the other hand, many children in hospitals have been forced by their health conditions to leave school for treatment due to serious and terminal diseases, as patients with cancer or war-wounded.

Solution

The Children's Museum Jordan developed the "Beyond Museum Walls" project as a mobile educational project that applies science communication through science shows. The shows are an informal educational tool to explain scientific concepts in a clear manner with simple terms that are familiar to children while also using comedy to keep them engaged. The shows are immersive and do not require any physical effort from children which is why they are perfect for the target groups.

Long-Term Impact

Raising hope and curiosity! This project draws a smile on the faces of children in difficult conditions and brings learning to children during chemotherapy sessions, to others who have not been to school because of their refugee status and others who have been isolated in their host communities. The program contributes to helping refugee and sick children end their isolation and to integrating them in society.
