Kids convention to make learning fun
Maryland is holding a kids convention -- the state's first -- this weekend at Towson State University. Youngsters from all over the state -- and their families -- are invited to participate in cultural activities, sports clinics and scientific exhibits. The Science Center will bring an exhibit that includes hands-on experiments and planetarium shows. There will be a computer lab, and a show by the Baltimore Zoo.
There will be displays and workshops for adults and family entertainment.
Sponsored by the Governor's Office for Children, Youth and Families and several area businesses, the convention will focus on the importance of families and the availability of services to help them.
