Kids discover how to be safe under the sun

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Some East Texas kids are having fun this summer while getting some summer safety lessons.

Kids of all ages raced solar cars and baked cookies in a solar oven at the "Beat the Heat" program at Discovery Science Center.

They learned how to stay hydrated, use sunscreen and be more energy efficient. The program was sponsored by TXU Energy.
