Eau Claire (WQOW) –  UW-Eau Claire and CVTC teamed up at the Eau Claire County Fair on Sunday to teach children about science, technology, engineering and math, also known as STEM.

Students and faculty from both colleges set up stations around the fair for families to come and interact with in kid-friendly ways such as making slime, identifying rocks, playing with Legos and more.

It was a chance for kids of all ages to explore different jobs they may want to pursue in the future, with the program hoping it helps to develop a love for learning that will follow the students to college.

Students were at the booths to talk with kids and show that STEM is not only a career path, but also a community of like-minded people.

“I go to [UW]-Eau Claire,” Olu Famule said. “We have a little bit less of a diverse population so STEM helped me to meet different people of different backgrounds that fit mine, so it was home. It was family to me.”

The specific stations included sections on geology, physics, robotics and more.
