Volunteers brought it to life!

KAUAI'S CHILDREN'S DISCOVERY MUSEUM in Kapaa - Volcano Display Construction - Dozens of great volunteers worked for months. After design sketches were made, carpenters built the exterior. Professional Jeffrey Kinsey-Carroll Exhibition Fabricators came to Kauai and breathed the necessary life to the materials, adding in the curves and layers that made the display safe, invincible, fun and full of learning experiences.

 

Our volunteer artists brought creativity and long hours of paint slinging. It was hard work, long long hours, hundreds of pizzas and a lot of creative fun.
