UMIGO

UMIGO

CMOM is proud to present UMIGO, a cross media math experience funded by a Ready to Learn Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. UMIGO is available to you and your family through an interactive touch screen “You Make It Go” kiosk located on our first floor. There, the world of UMIGO is yours to explore at the swipe of a screen through multi layered appisodes.

Each appisode is a multimedia experience that combines funny, character driven stories, leveled game play and music videos. As they play, users will follow the adventures and mishaps of Bit, Bean and Dizzy – three outrageous and adventurous best friends. Children become active participants in the story and use their math skills to solve the gang’s biggest problems.

Aligned with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, UMIGO is a fun and engaging way to supplement learning that is already taking place in the classroom. Parents and children alike will process and master topics at a personalized pace; creating the building blocks to future learning. By presenting material in an exciting way, UMIGO builds a positive association with math and allows children to build the self-efficacy and confidence necessary to become effective problem solvers. Best of all new appisodes are being released every few months, ensuring fresh and interesting content for both kids and parents to enjoy.

Stop by the “You Make It Go” kiosk to explore each appisode and to pick up additional information as well as extended UMIGO learning materials for at-home use produced by CMOM and approved by national mathematics experts!

Come join us as we explore different habitats and the animals that live in them! Create a diorama to display your own animal home.
 

Duke Ellington: Big Band Instrument Making, 10:00am

All ages

10am - 4:45pm
Edward “Duke” Ellington was not only a talented jazz performer, but also a composer and the conductor of his own Big Band. Many of the famous pieces of jazz we know today – known as ‘standards’ – were written by Duke for his band, and for the specific talents of his musicians. Inspired by the individual style of these talented performers, build your own musical instruments similar to the ones you hear in Duke Ellington’s music.
This program is part of our "Jazzed!: The Changing Beat of 125th Street" exhibit and takes place on the lower level.
 

Swept Away: When Water Meets Sand, 10:30am

All ages

10:30am - 4pm
Explore how water changes ecosystems with our new Erosion Table! Discover water’s power on Earth’s surface by creating rivers and lakes through sand.

Thinking Like a Composer (Demo) , 11:00am

All ages

Music is made up of notes of different pitches, from low to high. An important characteristic of jazz music is that these notes are arranged in unusual rhythms. Examine a historic score sheet by composers such as Duke Ellington and Mary Lou Williams. Then match the sounds that you hear with notes on the paper and create your own score.
