Mom -ARTTech, a joint venture facilitated by the Meatpacking District BID in a partnership with the New York Hall of Science and the Children's Museum of the Arts, is a temporary installation in the meatpacking district where kids can learn about art and technology. It gives them the opportunity to learn STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) in a fun way. They can make their own digital movie. They can build a car out of cardboard and other art materials. They can visit a planetarium and learn about the stars. These are just a few of the activities available at ARTech. The variety of activities available should appeal to children from about ages 4 to 12. There are activities that seem more geared for younger children like a giant ball pit and an area where children can build things with wooden planks, wheels and pulleys among other things. Other areas seem of more interest to older children like making their own digital movie or adding to a giant post it art installation. Other areas are great for everyone like learning about the constellations in the pop-up planetarium. Of course, there are no age restrictions on any of the activities and if an older child wants to build things or whatever they can and if a younger child wants to make a movie or create a post it or whatever they can do that as well. ARTTech is just a really enjoyable place for children to learn, explore and create. There is no fee for visiting ARTech, and each visitor is allowed a one hour allotment of time in the space. However, tickets are required for everyone including adults and registration is required in advance.
