Kent State University Salem and the Columbiana County Educational Service Center joined Saturday to hold a free, hands-on learning experience for local children ages preschool-through-fifth grade. Kids STEAM University, held on the campus grounds, featured activities relating to STEAM: science, technology, engineering, art and math. Participating were area schools, community partners and businesses. Children went from station-to-station while participating in different STEAM concepts. Many of the projects were take-homes. The event is designed to both spark interest in STEAM in kids and to build community connections.Shown here, 6-year-old Annie Sommers of Salem had fun with bubble art. (Salem News photos by J.D.
