Stuffee is BCM's primary outreach program. Stuffee is a one of a kind health ambassador, under license from Beaumont Children's Museum. Children in PreK through grade 5 can learn the functions of the human body, the importance of eating healthy and fitness. Stuffee is a 7' foot tall "doll" with a giant zipper down the front that when unzipped his internal organs come into view and under supervision children can view and hold colorful soft reproductions of the hearts, lungs, intestines, and more!
The Science Superstars program will provide mind building and science-focused activities to the children that come to the Beaumont Children's Museum and in the community at outreach events. These engaging activities will spark excitement in the children to get them excited about learning more in the science and physics fields.
