Behind The Scenes: Meet Caitlin
The Children’s Discovery Museum is excited to welcome Caitlin, our new Community Programs and Relations Coordinator. She worked closely with Executive Director, Amarinda Keys, to plan and run Kids in the Woods summer program, and now she is gearing up for a fall full of engaging community programs.
Every Tuesday morning at 10:00, Caitlin will be leading Outdoor Adventures at Quarry Road, a weekly walk in the woods with a short activity at Quarry Road. She will also be running Einstein Time
Afterschool on Thursdays, our first weekly afterschool program in Waterville. Parents are able to drop their children off for this hour-long program, which will explore science in a way that is hands-on, engaging, and of course, a little messy!
She has some other events up her sleeve as well, including Maine-fest with the Maine State Museum on Saturday, October 16th, and Frightful Fun Packs filled with spooky activities, just in time for Halloween. Keep an eye out on our for more information!
This week, we sat down with Caitlin to learn a little bit more about her:
Childrens Discovery Museum: How would you describe your job to a 5-year-old?
I get to plan all the fun activities we do at the museum! Plus I get to play with everyone who is in one of our programs and make new friends.
CDM: What did you want to be when you grew up?
A chef. I love cooking and eating food! I guess chemistry is a lot like cooking and baking!
CDM: Where did you grow up?

Wonder 4 All Participant
Nutrien Wonderhub has been monumental in my life. Most important is that its an outing that lights my children up, every time. They dont realize that the play is educational, that it sharpens motor skills, enhances their creativity, or that theyre learning about, say, mining but Ill tell you, their playful and experiential learning is a shot in the heart to watch. Nutrien Wonderhub is the kind of attraction that deserves both public and private support so that its accessible to all children, and so it will be here to serve generations to come.
