Adventures in Technology Through Optics & Robotics
Learn how science and technology influence our lives through demonstrations that allow you to see first hand how some of today’s technologies function. The activities and crafts will help you understand how different scientific principles are used to solve real-world problems. Children of all ages will have a blast getting their hands dirty and learning about both science and engineering. Parents and adults may even learn a thing or two from the technical demos!
An interactive area for our youngest festival-goers, the KidZone tent provides a fun and safe area for children and their parents to discover and explore a wide variety of hands-on activities with different community partners. From learning karate, creating homemade instruments, or meeting prehistoric critters, KidZone offers different nightly activities for families at Top of the Park.
Led by community partners, all sessions are free, and take place from 5 to 8 pm every Tuesday through Sunday at the KidZone tent at Top of the Park.
