Families in Charlottesville got to explore some unique fields of science Saturday by taking part in hands on experiments.

The Virginia Discovery Museum hosted the children’s science festival called “Kid*Vention” at the Key Recreation Center. More than 40 organizations from around town set up booths offering a variety of games and activities.

This was the 17th year for the event. Organizers say they hope to spark children's interests in science.

The Virginia Discovery Museum is renovating right now and in a couple of months will bring some new science activities to its front gallery.
