HUNTSVILLE, Ala., (WHNT) – Kids and parents got to learn about and explore their favorite trucks this past weekend at Sci Quest’s annual Hands-on Trucks event.

WHNT News 19 brought Skylink, Storm Hunter 19, anchors, and reporters to teach children about how we report the news and the technology that makes it all possible.
