Thank You WRHS Interact Club!

Thank You, Washburn Rural High School Interact Club!

The Kansas Children's Discovery Center hosted a great group of volunteers from Washburn Rural High School Interact Club. Interact clubs, sponsored by Rotary International, bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills and participate in service opportunities. Washburn Rural High School Interact does community service at a number of local organizations, and chose to come to the Kansas Children's Discovery Center this week.

Volunteers vacuumed and swept the grain exhibit, vacuumed the build exhibit and disinfected glasses and tools, cleaned program carts, picnic tables and windows, and disinfected the farmers' market and careers exhibit and grow exhibit for toddlers. This was a hard-working bunch who finished even more projects then we planned. With 15,000 square feet of indoor exhibits and 4.5 acres of Certified Outdoor Exploration Classroom, the volunteers stayed busy!

Kansas Children’s Discovery Center offers high-quality interactive experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child. Volunteers aid our mission by creating these memorable experiences for every family who walks through our doors. Volunteers engage children in fun educational activities, provide customer service at our front desk, pitch in at special events, maintain our outdoor space, help facilitate field trips, celebrate birthdays, and keep exhibit areas ready for play.

If your organization is interested in a fun volunteer day at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, call our volunteer coordinator at (785) 783-8300. We have indoor and outdoor projects for any size group.

Thank You, Washburn Rural High School Interact Club!
