It’s a lot of fun, especially when they compete head-to-head says Education Curator Christin Brown. She’s loaded up the spring schedule with 29 groups and 2,741 students in March alone. Another 21 schools with 1,748 children are scheduled to come in April and in May, around 16 more schools with 1,911 registered participants.
Brown has streamlined all of her programming over the past 12 years and these large groups find them interesting and informative. The teachers and parent chaperones also appear to enjoy the activities, especially fishing when it's catching!
