Mobile Tech Lab Opens at Wright Park

As part of the Ready to Learn Project, KBTC has partnered with Metro Parks to bring PBS educational games outside. The Ready to Learn Mobile Tech Lab will be in Wright Park, Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00 - 3:00 pm, June 26 - August 16. Kids learn math and literacy skills as they play computer games staring their favorite PBS characters. They get sticker journals to track their adventures, record what they learn, and win prizes. Thanks to all the families and kids who attended our opening day. We look forward to playing with you throughout the summer!
