The Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA) is a traveling outdoor exhibit that provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about the importance of early childhood education while they engage in fun activities with their children. A part of PNC Grow Up Great initiative that began in 2004 to help children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life – the MLA includes interactive kiosks and the “What I Want to be When I Grow Up” station, where kids dress up as different professionals and have their picture superimposed on an appropriate background. In addition, parents can take home activity books and learning kits that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
