PASCO, Wash. – The best way for kids learn math, science and engineering is to experience it.
Energy Northwest's Women in Nuclear Chapter hosted their 5th annual Kids Engineering Day at Curie STEM Elementary in Pasco.
Activities ranged from creating their own slime, experimenting with gravity, and even robotic activities.
Organizers say the hands-on experiments help excite school-aged children about learning what math, science and engineering can offer.
"I’ve been doing a ton of fun science activities, like the marshmallow one I got to do,” said student Tommy Wolfgramm. “I got to create my own invention and I ate it!"
The event was free and open to the public. PNNL, AREVA, Washington River Protection Services, Polestar, and students from Delta, Hanford and Richland High Schools also supported this event.
