On Saturday, Roadway Safety Institute (RSI) staff taught kids and their families how to “be seen and be safe” at Tech Fest, an annual event held at The Works Museum in Bloomington, Minnesota. The event, designed to inspire kids’ interest in engineering and technology, features hands-on activities and demos from the museum and its partners.
This year, kids explored RSI’s new permanent exhibit at the museum. The exhibit, which opened in late 2016, teaches visitors about reflectivity and why reflective clothing is critical for being seen by drivers at night.
RSI staff also hosted a special activity that allowed kids to create their own reflective road signs and test them in the exhibit’s dark room.
