Discovery Center to Educate Children About MLK Jr.
With the nation honoring Martin Luther King Jr. tomorrow, the Discovery Center of the Southern Tier is helping children understand his significance.
Through a group of activities, the center hopes to teach children about stopping bullying and standing up for justice. Children will have the opportunity to both join in on a peace march and participate in a "pop a prejudice balloon" activity.
All activities will be free with admission.
Staff at the Discovery Center say it's important to teach children to respect one another.
"As the Discovery Center we are constantly teaching kids all different aspects of life," said Arianna Ortega, a weekend supervisor at the center. "We're not just here for science and STEM and things like that. We're here to teach them all about different values and making sure that we are all participating in the community fairly and friendly is really important to us."
The activities will begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m.
