OC Fair Imaginology Goes “Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead”

Imagination is in full S.T.E.A.M at the OC Fair this weekend. I will be attending this three day event with my four little Imagineers and I can’t wait to see what they think of it.

OC Fair Imaginology puts Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math in a way that is educational while being fun for kids. It also features FREE family-friendly activities throughout the fairgrounds. There are competitions for kids beginning from preschool age to high school, and it allows them to show their talents in S.T.E.A.M.

OC Fair Imaginology is a also fun way to support and encourage these subjects in my kids. I sure know their imagination needs more S.T.E.A.M, and that’s what we intend to do this weekend.

From the looks of things, I know we will have more than enough activities to get our hands into. Starting at the Centennial Farm where my OC city kids will get a chance to see life in a farm including cow milking, free hay rides, petting zoo, and making terrariums. Our second stop will be the S.T.E.A.M exhibits where my little Imagineers will have a chance to put their skills to the test. They will have the opportunity to make crafts and make their own portrait of a pet. They can also get creative and dirty while making a pinch pot (clay pot). They will have toys that stimulate science and engineering playtime. I know my five year old will love these since he’s always inventing and creating gadgets around our home. OC Fair Imaginology is all about helping bring out the S.T.E.A.M in our kids.

Imaginology is a free family event running from April 11-13that the OC Fair and includes tons of hands on activities. There will also be food vendors and great food trucks showcasing their art of culinary. Parking is free on Friday, and $7 Saturday and Sunday. If you have little Imagineers bring them out this weekend to support and encourage their little minds!
