MLK Day at KID

By February 16, 2016Maker, MLK Day, MLK Day of Service, STEM

If you were one of the almost 200 people who came in to KID Museum for MLK Day, you know that it was a lively day, filled with fun drop-in activities and solid line-up of special workshops, including 3D-printed jewelry, soldering, hat-making, and motorized spin pins. In the afternoon, kids were able to explore motors and engines in an impressive hands-on display. In addition, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation offered free coding “boot-camps” on-site, teaching the logic of coding through video game design.

Students from our partnership schools–Westland and Parkland Middle Schools–were our special guests that day, along with elementary children from select Title I schools throughout the county.
