RICHLAND, WA – Energy Northwest’s Women in Nuclear chapter will host Kids Engineering Day at Curie STEM Elementary, 715 N. California, Pasco, Saturday, March 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The event includes 25 hands-on activities exploring the basic principles of math, science and engineering to elementary school-aged children. Activities will range from a rain cloud in a jar, measure pH of household items, pulley system and multiple robotics activities.
