Tonawanda News — “I can imagine if I brought them here on my own, it would just be me reading this and trying to hold their attention,” she said, motioning to a museum exhibit.

Loveless said that with educational standards becoming more and more defined, it’s important to connect the fun activities and the learning ones.

“Everybody has to justify everything they’re doing these days, but hands-on experiential learning is just so important. We don’t want people to skip out of field trips and hands-on learning, but we want to make sure they’re not here just to ride the carrousel,” she said.

“A lot of people, this is their first time here, so hopefully they’ll have a good time and they’ll come back.”
