I'll Fly Away
I'll Fly Away

What Is The FACTORY?

THE FACTORY is the exciting new 8,400-square-foot addition to KidSenses Children's Interactive Museum. Now under development, THE FACTORY will be a special place where youth can meet friends, ask questions, share ideas, make things, and pursue their passions.

Increasingly, jobs in our region are reflecting a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based economy, and THE FACTORY will help our youth acquire the knowledge and develop the skills necessary to succeed in this future work environment. Youth will be encouraged to be creative, innovative, independent, and technologically literate.

The current audience for KidSenses is families with children from infancy to age 10.

THE FACTORY will be designed to engage youth from age 11 and up.

How are you doing today?

When someone asks you how you're doing, how do you respond? Do you just pass off their question as a greeting and just say, "Fine" or "Okay"? Do you launch into a laundry list of complaints you have about how you're feeling or what's wrong with you or how you were doing fine until that obnoxious Mr. Jones ruined your day?

Or, maybe you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick. Mrs. Glick was a very special lady. My friend met her when he was a teenager. She made a real and positive impact on his life.

Every time my friend asked Mrs. Glick how she was doing, Mrs. Glick said softly and sweetly, "I'm thankful for one more day." She lived to be 103 years old, greeting each day by being thankful for one more day.

So my friend, when asked how he's doing today, says like Mrs. Glick, "I'm thankful for one more day."

The next time someone asks, "How are you doing today?," even if you don't feel it, say, "I'm thankful for one more day" and keep saying it until you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick.
