Spark Orthodontics Familienplatz

The Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA) is a traveling exhibit that provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about the importance of early childhood education while they engage in fun activities with their children. MLA is part of PNC Grow Up Great – a $350 million, multi-year initiative that began in 2004 to help children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. It includes interactive kiosks and the “When I Grow Up” station, where kids dress up as different professionals and have their picture superimposed on an appropriate background. In addition, parents can take home activity books and learning kits that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
