Mobile Tech Lab Makes a Splash at Ethnic Fest

Since 1986, Ethnic Fest has been Pierce County's premier summer festival that features the many cultures and ethnic groups that make Tacoma a great place to live. Participants enjoyed two full days of music, dance, art, and foods from around the world. KBTC hosted the RTL Mobile Technology Lab in the KIDS Zone of the festival. Kids had a chance to play RTL games, get a free goody bag, and enter to win fabulous PBS KIDS prizes. Over 1,200 kids visited the KBTC both. Thanks to all the families who participated!


Last Saturday, our RTL team was at the Children's Museum of Tacoma for a SUPER WHY themed SPARKS Program. Kids and Families learned all about hieroglyphics from their favorite SUPER WHY characters. Together, we solved a secret code, found a hidden treasure, and created our own hieroglyphics. Thanks to all the families who came to play. Next month...Dinosaur Train! Registration begins August 1st.
