The After School STEAM Educational Day was held Wednesday, February 25th at Park Fair Mall, 100 E. Euclid.

Donald Pipkins, a retired Launch Engineer from the NASA Johnson Space Center, brought a ten foot pop up of the International Space Station and a mock shuttle for students to examine.

The "From Dreams to Reality" Exhibit was part of the morning program along with great workshops for middle and high school students. Workshops were offered in two sessions. It was a great learning experience with lots of hands on fun!
