Families can pick up a STEAM passport at the free family event and have it stamped during hands-on activities.
At the end they will be given a certificate for completing the event.
“We are really excited to have some special featured booths this year including Dino Crew who will be bringing some neat mechanical puppet dinosaurs and a fossil pit,” Caufield said. “We will have the Wildlife World Zoo, the Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary with some reptiles and we will be featuring Stratum Laser.”
Stratum Laser is expected to bring different equipment to show the engineering behind amusement park rides.
“The goal of the event is to help kids find another avenue to get them excited about STEAM,” Caufield said. “Also by featuring some of the members of our city staff community they can see how they could use STEAM in those jobs.”
