Kids of all ages love to build stuff, and Turtle Bay Exploration Park wants enthusiasts to spend Saturday playing their way to better spatial and visualization skills.
This month’s Family Second Saturday at Turtle Bay will feature hands-on activities that teach lessons in geometry and symmetry, as well as the creativity of construction. The event will be in Zubie’s Classroom at Turtle Bay from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., and is included with regular park admission.
