DINO DETECTIVES (Saturday, May 31 – 10:30 AM)
Travel back in time to a world ruled by massive plant-eaters and vicious carnivores! Dino Detectives, a hands-on learning program presented by the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, allows children to investigate prehistoric times through a series of “Science Stations”: activity station, imagination station, data collection station, and analysis station. Program recommended for children in Pre K through Grade 3.  Parents are encouraged to help their youngsters, and the number of participants is limited to make the experience more fun and meaningful for everyone.

CAKE BAKE (Saturday, May 31 - Registration at 12:30 PM)
First through fifth grade students can work together with a parent, grandparent, or other adult friend to bake a cake with an imaginative design. After the cake is baked, it should be brought to the Uniontown Mall to be iced and dressed up with edible decorations! The cake should be decorated to represent a scene from a child’s favorite book. What story will you tell with your cake? (Official Rules)
