USC Children's Center holds STEM fair

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The USC Children's Center hosted a free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fair on Saturday.

Through 13 interactive exhibits, the STEM Fair demonstrated activities that incorporate inquiry-based skills into play time with children, even to those in infancy, on a day-to-day basis.

The STEM Fair exhibits connected science and math standards for early childhood students, and included hands-on components, guiding questions and accompanying literature.

Inquiry-based learning, which is fundamental to academic and career success in the STEM fields, can begin very early in the life, organizers said.
