Additionally, attendees will have the chance to witness auditions for Tri-Rail’s “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent” singing competition.
Families and children will have the opportunity to explore the museum’s wide array of exhibits and are encouraged to visit “Thomas & FriendsTM: Explore the Rails!” Featuring the favorite engines and destinations from Thomas & Friends™, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) – focused exhibit seeks to engage children, ages 2 through 7, and families in foundational skills that foster STEM literacy through playful learning experiences. The exhibit incorporates STEM practices that encourage thinking mathematically, making comparisons, experimenting to solve problems using a variety of methods and tools, thinking creatively and reflecting on actions and results.

Each act will have a four-minute opportunity to perform at the auditions. A panel of judges will select the acts that will compete in the final competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 2024, during Tri-Rail’s 15th annual “Rail Fun Day.”
