Ohio Invention Convention is all STEAMED up and ready to go! Will you join them?
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!

One of our recent projects was inspired by the book in my Reading STEMs Learning Series entitled, 'The Crayon Man'. We created these fun STEAM sun catchers with crayon shavings and wax paper!
