On Saturday, March 16th, 2019 over 50 exhibitors from the Lakelands region gathered for the inaugural iMAGINE STEAM Fest in Greenwood, SC. Close to 4,000 participants stretched from the Farmers’ Market to the Arts Center, enjoying exhibits ranging from flashlight making, robot programming, and drone flying, to beekeeping, snake handling, and topiary building.
One parent that attended indicated,
We had a marvelous time, and I’m logging it as a Bona Fide school day on our calendar!! I loved that my kids got to see/hear/touch the answers to ALL those questions kids ask… why is the sky blue? How do bees make honey? How do they clean the water? How does an owl look around without moving his eyeballs? What makes tornadoes sound like trains? What does a snake feel like? How does an engine work? What makes rainbows? And on and on!!! *********Seriously, this was the Best Event Greenwood has Ever Hosted!!!!******* Please bring it back Every Year!!!!
Fueled by the Arts Center of Greenwood and sponsored by Lonza, the 2019 iMAGINE STEAM Fest was a great success that will continue to be built upon in the coming years. We want to extend a special thank you to all who supported to make the day possible – exhibitors, volunteers, and attendees!
Dates for 2020 will soon be decided and posted.
