Students who participate in Teen Summit learn more about how museums work and the processes that happen behind the scenes to make an exhibition come to life. Through the creation and final product of a miniature 3-D exhibition (gallery box), students in Teen Summit go through a full design process in which they learn how to generate, prototype, and present ideas.
Teen Summit connects students from a variety of northeast Ohio schools with art and with each other. Through activities designed to prepare students for the world beyond the classroom, participants build communication skills, teamwork, and creative problem-solving. As they explore the museum and its collection, students contribute their knowledge and talents to solve real-life challenges in a museum setting.
