Join the STEAM Expo fun at the Nevada County Fairgrounds this Saturday (April 7) from 9 am to 3 pm. Offered by NC Superintendent of Schools, this free family event integrates all aspects of 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 exhibitors. They’ll also be a family scavenger hunt, bicycled powered smoothies, and more! It’s free, so join the fun! For more information, visit http://www.nevcoexpo.org/.
We’re excited for the 3rd Annual Farm Day, happening on Thursday at the Fairgrounds! We’ll have almost 700 kids from area schools on the grounds to learn about agriculture in Nevada County, meet lots of animals, and, of course, meet some draft horses. Thank you to the Nevada County Resource Conservation District, the Nevada County Farm Bureau, and Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students for making this day possible!
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!
