Beeping Egg Hunt

Since 2011, the Education Department has invited visually impaired or blind children and their families to participate in a Beeping Egg Hunt.

Our specially designed plastic eggs, which were made and donated by the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators volunteers, emit a chirping sound that allows children to retrieve them using their hearing. Sighted siblings are encouraged to participate by wearing a blindfold.
The event also includes a petting zoo, a Touch a Tractor station, sensory activities, plus verbal descriptions and touch tours in the art gallery.
