AMMAN — Her Majesty Queen Rania visited the Children’s Mobile Museum on Monday, which is currently stationed at Al Khansaa Secondary School for Girls in Jerash, around 48km north of the capital.

The Queen toured the various interactive and educational stations and exhibits in the school’s multipurpose hall, which aim to encourage the development of children’s imagination and scientific skills, according to a statement from Her Majesty’s office.

Accompanied by EU Ambassador Andrea Matteo Fontana and Children’s Museum Jordan Director Sawsan Dalaq, Queen Rania joined a number of female students who were enjoying the Mobile Museum’s interactive activities. 

She also received a briefing about its latest upgrades, including the newly installed “Power Around Us” station.

This latest installation was developed with the support of the European Union in Jordan, and aims to educate children on the importance of renewable, alternative and natural sources of energy, the statement said.

The Mobile Museum features an inflatable 3D planetarium and several science stations showcasing unique physics, chemistry, and human anatomy exhibits that offer engaging experiences for students.

Her Majesty also dropped by a chemistry class and an English class for seventh grade female students, and met with the school’s teaching staff.

The Mobile Museum was launched in 2012, with the aim of reaching the widest range of young people across Jordan. 

It has been set up in the majority of Jordanian governorates, welcoming both school students and families free of charge, and providing unique and interactive educational experiences. 

To date, the Children’s Mobile Museum has welcomed nearly 173,000 visitors, including 40,000 last year alone.

The Children’s Museum Jordan is an educational non-profit organisation launched by Queen Rania in 2007. 

The museum offers children more than 150 indoor and outdoor interactive exhibits, as well as many educational and interactive spaces. 

In addition, the museum offers year-round educational programmes, celebrations and shows. 

 

Since its opening, the museum has welcomed approximately 2 million visitors.
