S.T.E.A.M. Fest Inspires Creativity in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- A local fundraiser for a non-profit group showed off some interesting science to inspire kids.

The Yakima Maker Space hosted S.T.E.A.M. or Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math Fest. The event was held to show kids of all ages how exciting making things can be.

"This is a space that is supposed to be supportive of whatever people in Yakima want to create," Nathan Poel said. "So if you have something that you want to make, come on down, share your idea with us and we will work our best to get the tools you need to be able to make that thing new."

Yakima Maker Space is fundraising to open classes and memberships for their non-profit November 1st.
