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.
