Contest now open! Be sure to enter daily!

MetroFamily wants to help YOU get your kids excited about STEAM with our first-ever Geekapalooza Blitz!

STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) education is the future for our state and our nation. Almost every job in today’s world — from food processing to automobile parts — is related to math, science and art. All it takes is a “spark” of interest to launch a child in a direction that can impact him or her for a lifetime!
