Families can participate in hands-on science experiments, as well as other games and activities organized by Penn State student clubs and community groups. Children 9 and under will receive book giveaways and treat bags that include a free PBS Kids book, Dairy Queen coupon and other WPSU items.
Children and their families are also encouraged to bring pet food donations, which will be shared with area humane agencies and local food banks.
