The STEAM Expo 2016 is this Saturday (April 9) from 9 am to 3 pm at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Offered by NC Superintendent of Schools, this free family event combines science, technology, engineering, art, and math into an engaging experience for the entire family. K-12 students are encouraged to investigate with hands-on fun like robotics demonstrations, on-the-spot team competitions, hands-on STEAM experiences, music, science/art related videos, and activities offered by local STEAM-related companies. Join the STEAM Expo fun at the Fairgrounds. More information is available here.
Community Canvas, Inc. is offering summer camps again this year, including the popular Nevada County Fair themed camps where artists create Fair submissions. From acrylics, to mixed-media, re-purposed art, and watercolors – your child will leave with several completed masterpieces ready to enter in the Fair. What a fun way to prepare exhibits for the Fair! Check out this video for details!
We love this photo of a young artist working on her Harvest Fair entry! Have you turned in entry forms to enter an item in the Harvest Fair?
