I am so excited to share more information with my followers regarding a wonderful STEAM based program in Ohio for kids grade K-12!

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.
