Plenty to do on March Break

Posted on March 7, 2012

Andrew Phillips, curator of education and public programs at the Museum of Industry prepares for the upcoming March break activities taking place at the museum March 10 to 18. The theme this year is hot cars and fast wheels with various displays and activities including a real stock and Nascar as well as an old fashioned gas pump and driver’s suit. (Harvie photo)

For some, March Break consists of sitting in front of a television or playing video games for a week, reveling in the fact there is no school for an entire seven days.
This year, why not take part in some of the events going on throughout the county?
There is truly something for everyone from insect lovers to builders and girls wanting to learn a bit more about health and nutrition while having fun.
