PASCO, Wash.-- Kids in Pasco learn about how engineering can be fun.

The Energy Northwest Women in Nuclear group hosted a math and science event at Columbia Basin College on Saturday.

Kids Engineering Day featured demonstrations and some hands on activities.

Organizers hope events like this one will spark an early interest in the engineering field.

"It's the application of the engineering, math and science principles that they're learning in school and so this helps them realize how much fun it can be and how what they're learning applies to everyday life," said Desire Wolfgramm, Women in Nuclear.

Some of the popular demonstrations showed how electricity and friction work.
