Many of you joined us for the first KUSC Kids Discovery Day at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County on Sunday, April 9, 10a-3p! There were activities all day including live performances, interactive musical games designed just for kids, and a live broadcast featuring KUSC’s Alan Chapman, Brian Lauritzen, and John Van Driel from 9a-1p. Plus, kids got in free and adults received a discount just by mentioning KUSC! In case you missed it, or just want to relive the fun, here are some photos below.
