Play Documentary Screening

It's been months, but it's finally time for our next screening of "Where Do the Children Play?" This time, the Children's Museum is partnering with The Pennfield School to present a free public screening of this provocative documentary, which examines an issue of growing concern among pediatricians, mental health experts, educators and environmentalists: more and more children are growing up with few opportunities for unstructured play, especially outdoors.

An audience discussion about the ideas explored in the film will follow, led by Museum director Janice O'Donnell; Aquidneck Land Trust stewardship director Andy Arkway; Norman Bird Sanctuary executive director Robert Cardeiro; Pennfield School athletic director Will Glennon; and pediatrician and RI American Academy of Pediatrics chapter president Dr. Elizabeth Lange.
The film will be shown

Wednesday, October 21
6:30 - 8:30 PM at
