Help Explora decorate their Dia De Los Muertos float

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Science isn’t always the most popular subject, but there’s one museum trying to change that.

Explora, a museum described as part science center and part kids museum, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to demonstrate a fun “Cool Science” experiment.

This week, Explora is asking for the community’s help to decorate their Dia De Los Muertos Marigold Parade Float. Watch above.
