In-APP-ropriate: A Provocative Question Forum on Children and Mobile Devices
Friday, March 21 | 7:00 p.m.

Hand-held mobile communication devices are becoming more and more present in our society, connecting people in new ways, but also presenting challenges to social relationships and human development. Learn how these devices may be impacting our social interaction and our health, and discuss whether their use among children should be regulated. This question will help to inform a future component in our new Hall of Human Life exhibit.

Advance registration begins at 9:00 a.m., Friday, March 7 (Wednesday, March 5 for Museum members).
