Create. Make. Repeat.

Science fairs and STEAM events present a learning opportunity for the entire family, including younger siblings who can watch, absorb, and come up with hypotheses and ideas of their own. With an emphasis on hands-on investigations, field work, and participating in STEAM just as real scientists and engineers would, makes these events more relevant and creative than ever.
