Play at Powerhouse – a new website for children

Today we launched our new website aimed at children under 8 and their parents and carers. Play at Powerhouse. The site contains information for visiting the Powerhouse Museum with children; and extension materials, activities and games to engage children at home, around themes of science and design.

The team has done a lot of work in reducing the volume of information contained on the main Powerhouse Museum website, simplifying and targeting it at the site’s audience; not to mention the design and construction of stacks of activities.

This is just stage one. We have three more online games coming in the next two months as well as around thirty new ‘at home’ activities.

The site complements and promotes a whole new suite of Museum offerings aimed at young children including the wonderful Zoe’s House playspace.
