Queen Rania Al Abdullah launches the "I Am Change" exhibit at the Children's Museum- Jordan

June 5, 2013

Her Majesty Queen Rania al Abdallah officially launched today the new "I Am Change" exhibit at the Children’s Museum Jordan which aims to raise children's awareness on water and energy conservation.
Funded by the United States Agency for International Development under its Public Action for Water, Energy and Environment Project, this modern and dynamic exhibit will challenge children’s conceptions related to water and energy and orient them to a “new mindset” about the role every citizen can play to conserve water and energy. It will also introduce children to new ways of preserving these vital sources; teach them about alternative energy sources and environmental protection.
His Excellency US Ambassador Stuart E. Jones, His Excellency Hazem Nasser, Minister of Water and Irrigation, His Excellency Malek Kabariti Minister of Energy & Mineral Resources and representatives of government institutions and partners, as well as the international donor community, attended the inauguration.
During the opening ceremony, H.E. Ambassador Jones stated that he shares with Her Majesty her continuous and unwavering leadership, commitment, and support to provide the next generation with the tools and skills necessary to face different complex challenges such as water and energy shortage.
The "I Am Change" exhibit is also linked to a bilingual multilevel micro-site that provides an energized space for those who want to make a difference and help invent solutions to face the challenges of Jordan’s water and energy scarcities. This user-friendly, informative micro-site can be accessed by students, teachers and parents and will prepare users for their exhibit experience by providing tools and educational games that introduce concepts related to water and energy. The material included in the micro-site is linked to the national teachers’ training curricula and will enable teachers and parents to build on children's experiences gained during their visit to the exhibit.
Mrs. Sawsan Dalaq; Director of the Children’s Museum Jordan expressed her happiness in launching this exhibit saying: “We are proud to have been able to construct and put together an enormous exhibit that tackles a very important and global issue worldwide. We are grateful for the help and support of our donors and partners in this project for helping us provide an interactive and fun beneficial experience to all visitors and children."
