American Tobacco in Durham recently started a new series of programs for kids called “Explore … Create … Move.”‘
The four-part series started Sunday, May 1, 2011, at American Tobacco’s Bay 7. Each event features an expert leader and a theme that will attract a wide variety of kids. The first event, called Brickz 4 Kidz explored engineering and architecture through Legos.
“We’d like to be a destination for everyone, and the new series fits perfectly with our FOX 50 Family Fest and Great American Tobacco Duck Race every fall,” said Michael Goodmon, vice president of realty for Capitol Broadcasting Company, which owns the campus..
