Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh collaborated with ANSYS to design the storefront and activities for their booth in the Junior Achievement’s BizTown®, a fully-interactive community simulation, in January 2020. The Children’s Museum assisted ANSYS in creating a station to simulate how much weight a bridge can hold by building bridge models with materials at the ANSYS storefront. We also provided space planning and interior designs, coordinated the environmental graphic design and signage packages, selected furniture, and supervised installation of materials, furniture and equipment, with every element aligned to most effectively achieve STEM learning goals.
Junior Achievement’s BizTown® is an experiential learning laboratory for elementary and middle school students that combines nine hours of curriculum delivered in 12 lessons, and is followed by a four-and-a-half hour visit to JA BizTown®, a fully interactive, mock town that simulates the day-to-day functions of thriving communities. The program helps students connect what they learned in school with the realities of the business world and everyday life.”
