The organization focuses on teaching kids about science, technology, engineering, art, and math. On Saturday, people could drive robots created and built by local kids, learn how to fly a drone, check out 3D printing, and other fun activities.

“The value here is getting kids, giving them the opportunity to get their hands-on science. We say it’s where fun and learning collide because you have to have the fun first. We engage them by inviting them into the fun,” said Executive Director Shelly Gruenig.

A competitive robotics program is starting up this fall and will be open to the community.
