Kids participate in 'fish tales learning zone'

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Dow Louisiana Operations is now a partner with an educational program called "the Big Catch."

Kids were given the opportunity to be a part of a "fish tales learning zone" at the BREC City-Brooks Community Park on Dalrymple Drive Friday morning. 

It was a hands-on interactive learning experience put on in anticipation of the opening of the Knock Knock Children's Museum. Those in attendance could see design renderings for the first time and programs funded by Dow's $200,000 contribution.

"I envision the museum as a really high quality play experience for children to learn, to socialize, to grow, where it will create an opportunity for kids to want to learn more about this area, this community and all the things they need for early childhood learning," said BREC Supt. Carolyn McKnight.

The Knock Knock Children's Museum will be the first of its kind in the Baton Rouge area.

    A few visitors learned to never turn their back on a tiger. Fortunately, this tiger was in an enclosed space.
