South Carolina's STEM and Robotics Fun Day, Priceless Experience for $1

South Carolina's Times and Democrat reports that science, technology, engineering and math is on the agenda for kids and adults when Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina, ScienceSouth, Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds initiative and LEGO robotics team Tech Chicz get together.

The STEM and Robotics Fun Day will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology in Florence. Cost is $1 for children ages 3 and up and free for adults.

As part of the FIRST LEGO initiative, the event will feature the award-winning Tech Chicz, a Florence-based all-girl LEGO robotics team that has competed successfully in regional and state competitions for the past two years. The team will discuss this year's robotics challenge - Keeping Food Safe - where teams are asked to prevent food contamination using STEM principles.

For just $1, children ages 3 and up can participate in what will surely be a fantastic day! How many events are ever only $1?
