KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A visiting attraction hopes to help kids explore their curiosity when it comes to science, technology, and lift.

MilliporeSigma created something called the Curiosity Cube. Crews transformed a former shipping container into a mobile science lab.

The Curiosity Cube will stop in Kansas City beginning Monday, August 8.

Its goal is to help close the gap in Title 1 schools. Data shows that more than half of students in Title 1 schools miss out on the opportunity to experience hands-on science.

The Curiosity Cube will teach students about, and how to use, things like ozobots, digital microscopes and other scientific instruments.
