Details: Screen Time Social Sunday, Feb. 28, 11a-3p Museum of Jewish Heritage http://screentime.social $15 + adults, kids free Put down the iPad, pause your show, silence that phone. On Sunday, Feb. 28 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Battery Park, Brooklyn Based Kids has created a family-friendly event to help parents figure out the best approach to screen time, and introduce families to the brightest toys and games of the digital age. At Screen Time Social–emphasis on the word social–we’ll have maker workshops for the kids hosted by the Beam Center, BK Bots, Launch, and 3D Roundhouse, plus tech toys to play with from Geek Forest. It’ll be a ton more fun than a winter weekend stuck inside, and you’ll all get hands-on time with increasingly popular STEM activities like Lego Mindstorms and Minecraft. In between battling bots and learning how to 3D print a toy, Brooklyn Based Kids has curated expert talks that children are welcome to attend. Schedule highlights include: A short presentation and Q&A with Kristelle Lavallee from the Center on Media and Child Health on how screen time affects early childhood development Expert advice from Jessica Millstone, Director of Engagement for the educational technology company BrainPOP, on finding the best educational apps for your child A discussion with Tali Orad, founder of Screen, about how her new tool can help families strike a healthy balance with their electronic devices A panel on how teens are spending their time online, with speakers including Nancy Jo Sales, author of the forthcoming book, American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers Join in for a great day of talks and activities that will help your family make the most of the digital age. Admission for adults starts at $15 in advance and children 18 and under are free. Purchase tickets here, and learn more about the schedule and the excellent prizes we're raffling away.
