Attend OC STEAM Fest on April 25

If you’ve followed SoCal Field Trips for some time, then you know I am a strong proponent of introducing children to a variety of careers at a young age.   This includes careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, otherwise known as STEAM.

What To Do At OC STEAM Fest

Last year’s event featured a Esports Zone sponsored by Kingston Technology that brought together local school teams for a lively Esports tournament.  Other activities included LEGO Supertrack with BrainStorm STEM Education, Recycling with Waste Management, Solar Robot Creations with Altair Solar, and Robot Block Demolitions with Code Ninjas – Irvine.

In addition, the crowd enjoyed live entertainment from IPSF’s Afterschool Enrichment Musical Program, a “Super Cool” science presentation from Discovery Cube, an Ice Age Show featuring Amka the Woolly Mammoth, presented by Dino Encounters, and a talented Japanese drumming group from UCI.
