The event, geared toward kids ages four and up, is designed to inspire interest in engineering and technology. It features hands-on activities and demos from the museum and its partners.

Around 250 kids visited the CTS booth, where they played Gridlock Buster, our online traffic control game. CTS staff were also joined by MnDOT engineers, who helped attendees learn about and build their own bridges using MnDOT’s bridge-in-a-bag activity.
