#MetKIds, a digital experience "made for, with, and by 7-12 year old kids."

The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently launched a new digital feature “made for, with, and by 7-12 year old kids."  The multimedia project was created by children from all five boroughs of New York City and around the world in collaboration with specialists from the Museum.  Designed to enhance the museum experience, #MetKids features three primary navigation options that lead to explorations with fascinating objects, intriguing facts, and child-created videos. The experience offers plenty of ideas for creative projects and activities.  You can have fun posing like a sculpture with Olena, age 7 or creating a thaumatrope with Durga, age 11. And where else can you find the powerful god Eros taking a snooze? (It’s rare to spot a sleeping god in ancient Greek art.)
