How does this help? KidsQuest Children's Museum is a hands-on, interactive children's museum, encouraging learning through play with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Exhibits are geared towards children birth to age eight and their families. Without the help of volunteers and fundraising efforts like KidsQuest Carnival their over 650 programs put on throughout the year - including early learning classes, summer camps, drop-off and whole-family science workshops - wouldn't be possible.
