Ready, Set, Vroom!

The Family Resource Center & High Desert Museum host a Vroom Celebration on April 9.

Did you know that the brain develops most rapidly in the first five years of life? Every moment can be a brain building moment, and that’s where Vroom comes in! Vroom helps you make the most of the moments that you already share with your young child, at the grocery store, in the bathtub, or at the High Desert Museum. Vroom is turning small opportunities into powerful brain-building science.

From 4–8pm on Saturday April 9, the Family Resource Center (FRC), Early Learning Hub of Central Oregon, the United Way of Deschutes County and High Desert Museum invite families of young children, birth to five, to explore the Museum and experience the power of Vroom through the eyes of their child. When a child learns, not only do their eyes light up, but their brain lights up, too. Families participating in this great event will decode a secret message and earn a prize! Have fun growing young minds and come explore Vroom at the Museum!

“We are all in on helping shape growing minds,” said High Desert Museum Director of Programs Christina Cid.

Kim Pitts of the Family Resource Center said, “Vroom is a movement that is not only changing the conversation around early learning, but one that is empowering parents across the nation and sending the message that every parent has what it takes to be a brain-builder. And that is definitely something that Family Resource Center is thrilled to be a part of.”

Vroom with the High Desert Museum is an after-hours event at the Museum from 4–8pm, Saturday, April 9. Admission is free, but please RSVP at
