Mission

To spark children’s curiosity and enrich their learning through engaging museum resources

We feel museums are the perfect place to (re)discover stories about the world’s past, its events, inventions, and civilizations, with the power to inspire children and encourage them to discover new interests and pursuits. We believe all children should have the opportunity to access museum collections, be that on site or over a virtual platform.

Yet not all children have the chance to visit museums, or if they do, find them difficult to grasp. Equally, teachers value museum visits but can’t always take their class on visits due to cost or distance. And museums in turn, aim to educate and reach broad audiences, but often find it difficult to make their exhibits engaging to children and tricky to deliver digitally.

Which is why we have made it our aim to partner with museums to deliver exciting educational museum stories, apps, and resources to all children, irrespective of background or geography, by leveraging today’s technology to enrich in-museum or classroom based online experiences, supporting museums and teachers in their mission to educate.

Team

Adriana Rouanet
Adriana Rouanet Founder and CEO

I am a cultural producer and former teacher in higher education. For the past 15 years, I have developed projects in the Arts and Education that engage and connect people from different cultures and backgrounds.

As a proud mother of two very clever teenage girls, Jasmin (aged 15) and Camilla (aged 12), I thank them for accompanying me (often against their will) to numerous museums around the world, where they would listen to my intricate stories about their treasures. In the end, it is their creativity and unencumbered way of looking at the world that have inspired me to found Museonics.

Hannah Mahapatra Head of Learning

I am a passionate educator with a wide range of experience. Prior to moving into museum education full time, I spent much of my teaching career in primary schools in areas of high social deprivation where I saw first-hand the complex challenges facing schools and families. Sadly, it is still the norm, in the UK and abroad, that the exciting educational openings offered by our wonderful museums and galleries remain firmly closed to the most vulnerable members of the community.

As a museum educator, I am committed to democratising access to the exciting educational opportunities that museums and galleries offer. Unlocking museum treasures through digital experiences can be an irresistible way to learn and can stimulate curiosity and a sense of confident inquiry.

We’re designers, teachers and consultants. In the last 23 years we have developed projects in several areas and in partnership with several professionals, from small entrepreneurs to large corporations. We believe that the best projects are driven by generosity and affectivity, multiplying their positive effects throughout the market.

As teachers of Arts for children and Design for college students, we strive to provide our students with a useful and at the same time inspiring experience that provokes a desire to see more, read more, and understand more about what we are teaching.
