Virginia Discovery Museum Holds Annual Kid*Vention Festival

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia Discovery Museum held its free family science festival called Kid*Vention Saturday at the Key Recreation Center in downtown Charlottesville.

More than 35 exhibitors from across central Virginia set up hands-on demonstrations for the kids.

Organizers say the annual event gives families a chance to have some fun while learning a little something about science.

“One of the most important parts of the museum's mission is to make sure we're reaching out to all of our community members and sharing the love of the learning with them and the excitement you can have when you learn about science,” said executive director Amy Wicks-Horn.

The Virginia Discovery Museum says Saturday's turnout was the best it's had since the festival started more than 15 years ago.
