Welcome to Kidzu!
Help Kidzu Save the Spoondelier!
We need your help to ensure that the Spoondellier continues to inspire children in our Makery. Funds will go directly to purchasing this signature element and ensuring that the Makery continues to reflect and celebrate the creativity of our region by featuring local artwork, hosting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) programs by local makers, and bringing in new technologies to share with our community.

Come Visit Kidzu's Launch Pad Location
Kidzu is currently hosting the highly acclaimed traveling exhibit from the Minnesota Children's Museum, Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog, at our Launch Pad location at University Mall, in the space formerly occupied by the Chapel Hill Public Library. A celebration of literacy and playful learning, this exhibit will delight visitors, while offering fresh inspirations for our team. Inspired by Scholastic Entertainment's top-rated TV show Clifford the Big Red Dog® on PBS Kids®, the exhibit offers numerous immersive "paws-on" adventures that reinforce "Clifford's Big Ideas"-ten simple tangible life lessons designed to help young children navigate their world.
Another exciting feature of our Launch Pad is our creative zone, The Makery, a vibrant art studio and maker space which invites visitors to tap into their creative energy and experiment with new materials, techniques and various forms of art and making. The Makery is a creative STEAM'D (science, technology, engineering, art, math, and design) laboratory where children and families can tinker, invent, and create to their hearts' content.
Come visit our Launch Pad that sets ideas, imaginations and children in motion, while stretching children's minds, bodies and creativity and inspiring adults and children to learn through creative play.
