A CHILDREN'S MUSEUM PROVIDES DELTA CHILDREN WITH A WAY TO BUILD SOCIAL SKILLS AND PREVENT DEPRESSION AND EARLY SUICIDES.
+Smaller towns have "high levels of social isolation, which could contribute to feelings of loneliness and depression." "From 1996 to 2010, rates of death from suicide among children, teens and young adults were nearly double in rural communities, when compared to urban ones." -Huffington Post March 17, 2015
A CHILDREN'S MUSEUM PROMOTES HANDS-ON LEARNING OVER TECHNOLOGY, ESPECIALLY DURING WINTER MONTHS.
+Delta has a shortage of winter extracurricular educational programs.
A CHILDREN'S MUSEUM IN DELTA= "A GOOD START"
+Delta High School test rates are below average. "Students who do not have a good start usually do not thrive later on." Chrys Doherty (senior research scientist at ACT Inc)
A CHILDREN'S MUSEUM REQUIRES ADULT SUPERVISION, WHICH BUILDS PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS AND PROVIDES HIGHER AVENUES TO EDUCATION
+"Students with the good fortune to be exposed to rich content in science,
history, and other subjects at a young age may develop an interest in those subjects. Interest, in turn, leads to greater learning. Simply having the content available in libraries and on the Internet is not enough, because children need adults to guide them to the content and help them understand it." Chrys Doherty (senior research scientist at ACT Inc)
A CHILDREN'S MUSEUM UNIFIES THE COMMUNITY
+Local businesses would contribute to the museum, a play area would be created to represent that business in play form, and visitors will be encouraged to shop locally.
+Utah State/high school students, scouts, and various adults/organizations would be encouraged to participate in community service hours at the museum
+Other community museums and city buildings would be promoted through the children's museum: Delta City Library, Topaz Museum, Delta City Museum
+People would be more likely to move here
