LYNCHBURG, V. (WFXR) — Amazement square in Lynchburg is a big hit with the kids and adults. The museum sparks imagination, creativity, and interactive learning. That is why many have attended the 19-year-old museum for school tours, field trips, specialized programs, and family fun.
However, just like many other businesses, the museum acted on the CDC and Governor’s recommendations and closed their doors due to the devastation of COVID-19.
The museum is made up of an incredible staff or better described, an Amazement Square family with a special bond. The staff put their heads together and decided that their mission to educate and be a resource to the community doesn’t stop with the Coronavirus.
A², Anywhere! is a concept the museum hadn’t initially planned to launch until May, but as soon as their doors closed their daily educational videos went online. It is through creative collaboration and to be frank, sacrifice and altruism during an unpredictable time that A², Anywhere has been born.
WFXR witnessed the magic behind their production.
The team discusses and consolidates ideas, implements plans, then go to an upper floor of the facility where they have created a great studio and use the expertise of a local videographer. An even more impressive feat, each group that acted out their interactive videos completed their videos in one take.
The informational videos are available for kids of all ages. The team made sure that the interactive videos make use of supplies that most already have it home.
