Every year, organizations host kids activities for free to engage young audiences and offering a chance to educate people on their organization and services. This year, NIPSCO has sponsored the STEAM Park to include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) activities that you can follow at home. Some activities are available at any time, and some will be happening live! Check out the list below from this year’s participating organizations.
Explore ARCH’s Built Heritage ABCs, which spotlights a building or place (plus a very special boat!) in Northeast Indiana for every letter of the alphabet. Help us create the People’s Built Heritage ABCs by submitting you favorite places!
