Booths included everything from Runza Restaurants to the Health Department talking about mosquito prevention.

The Edgarton Explorit Center was also there, teaching children science through hands on experiments.The group says they come back each year to show how fun science can be.

"Science is fun. Sometimes when you're stuck in a classroom, you don't always catch what Science can be," Volunteer Nicole Havik said. "You learn from that textbook or whatever, here we give you actual hands on Science things. We are hoping to promote Science in all ages so everybody gets the chance to learn, have fun and see where they take it in the future."

Kool Aid Days continues on Saturday and while the Explorit booth won't be there again, there are many other booths that will be.
