A robot building station, sponsored by Puget Sound Energy, was one of the educational booths at 2014’s STEM Fair in Lacey.

The Lacey S.T.E.M. Fair will take place Saturday, May 2nd from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Huntamer Park in Woodland Square.  This year’s highlights include robotics demonstrations and competitions, building and launching an air powered rocket, hands on LEGO ® activities, and the ever popular Lacey Grand Prix electric car rally.

What is S.T.E.M.?  It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and it is the future!  Don’t miss this great event that will showcase school clubs and teams from all over Thurston County and beyond sharing their S.T.E.M. projects with hands on activities for kids, demonstrations, displays, and more.

In addition to all the displays and activities, this year there will also be a Discovery Quest activity that kids can participate in.  The quest will take them around the event learning about STEM while applying it to various activities. A completed Quest card can be turned in for a chance to win great prizes.  Also, the school that has the most participation will win a free assembly with Professor Fickelstein’s Physics Phactory and the professor will also do his physics show at noon at STEM Fair.
