Discovery Station officially welcomed a new exhibit Tuesday with the "Go Figure!" hands-on children's exhibit.
"'Go Figure!' is a 700-square-foot exhibit where popular children's books are brought to life in gigantic reproductions of original illustrations," said Marie Byers the Discovery Station's volunteer executive director. "This interactive exhibit came to us from the Minnesota Children's Museum, and is a terrific math and literacy exhibit, targeted for children ages 2 through 10."
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was scheduled to include the Mayor of Hagerstown Robert E. Bruchey II, museum board members and volunteers and local officials.
"We wouldn't be able to have this exhibit come to Hagerstown without the help of grants, which Discovery Station was able to receive," Byers said. "This wonderful educational program was made possible locally by a $20,000 Citi Foundation of New York grant. The Nora Roberts Foundation donated $4,000 which will be used for the care and maintenance of this interactive literacy and mathematics exhibit."
