Perot Museum (our largest vendor) will be hosting their Earth and Space program with multiple interactive stations and Bricks for Kidz will be there with 2 hands-on STEM building LEGO stations! Our local Ellis County 4H Club will be set up with some cool rocket demonstrations for kids to try and our very own Eagle Science Club, with Mrs. Campbell’s high school students, will be offering several science activities.
