SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - School is out for the weekend but the learning continued Saturday in Sullivan. Kids got the opportunity to get inspired!
Sullivan Middle school hosted the third annual Wabash Valley Makers Fest. More than three hundred people took part in the event focused on science, technology, engineering and math.
Kids and their families learned about drones, robots, and virtual reality.
Purdue Extensions and the Farm Bureau worked together to plan this event aimed at inspiring the next generation.
Event coordinator Chad Ledune says, "All of them are going to experience the real world and real world problems. If we can begin early getting them used to using some technology to help them problem solve, I think that's a skill they're going to use for the rest of their lives."
There were fifteen volunteer speakers who helped with the education stations.
