STEAM Carnival is inspiring the next generation of doers, dreamers, innovators and inventors. We’re showing kids of all ages what it means to get hands on, play and have fun with the coolest gadgets, gizmos and games that science, art and technology have to offer. STEAM Carnival is a playground for those who want to experiment, explore and engage with the world around them, while firing some lasers and programming a robot or two along the way.
