Sizing Up My World is The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures’ (TMTM) ambitious initiative to provide a free museum visit to school-children or youth from family service programs in the Tucson metro area.
Now schools and families who do not have the resources to afford a trip to the museum can engage children in a stimulating and challenging museum environment that enhances learning and creativity.
Funds raised for Sizing Up My World will go towards field trip costs including transportation and admission to The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures as well as provide educational outreach programs that begin right in the classroom.
In addition to providing a unique and exciting environment for learning, teachers and parents will be pleased to know that tours and outreach activities are developed to support classroom objectives in the Arizona Common Core standards in Math, English, Language Arts and Social Studies.
