I am so excited to share more information with my followers regarding a wonderful STEAM based program in Ohio for kids grade K-12! I am also pleased to introduce Robin Hilsmeier, who is the Executive Director of the Ohio Invention League, as my guest blogger for this post! If you have never heard of the Ohio Invention League, definitely spend some time reading through her post and checking out the additional resources below! For background, I 'met' Robin briefly (virtually) during a STEAM working group in Northeast Ohio late last year and we connected regarding Ohio's Invention Convention or Invention League! It is such neat program for kids. I asked if she would be willing to help share all the details on my blog! If your child would like to participate the deadline to register this year is February 15.
