Harker Heights Outdoor and Science Expo Defies Rain, Engages Community in Educational Fun

The Harker Heights Parks and Recreation hosted its third annual Harker Heights Outdoor and Science Expo on Saturday, despite the rainy weather. Over 100 attendees from different cities in Texas came to enjoy the four-hour expo, which started at 9 a.m. at the Harker Heights Recreation Center.

The event featured a range of activities, raffles, presentations, and even free gifts for attendees to take home with them, all centered around the theme of the outdoors and science. Kailie Gomez, the outdoor programs coordinator for HH Parks and Recreation, explained that “We get to provide this opportunity to the community. They get to participate in educational material, maybe pick up a new hobby or skill, and join a new organization.”

Children were particularly excited about the mobile planetarium, where they could catch one of four shows while families and community members explored different groups’ stalls collecting seasonal flower seeds and gardening materials. Attendees also got their own pinhole projector to witness April’s total solar eclipse. The expo had something for everyone, no matter their age.

Vendors provided snacks, games, toys, educational books and pamphlets for onlookers who were eager to learn more about the outdoors and science. Cassy Hill from U.S Army Corps of Engineers in Belton said she loved interacting with kids at the event because “It is extremely important to get the message out there to younger generation because those are ones who are going lead us into future.” Mary Jameson from Belton was thrilled about attending with her son Edward saying “It is very fun so far; we just got here but definitely can’t wait to watch planetarium.”
