Hands-on with STEM at Kids Engineering Day

Feature Story

​​(Above) Participants at Kids Engineering Day in Kennewick, Washington, got a chance to experience life as a radworker and don protective gear.​

Science got a little messy March 4 as about 350 children got hands-on with wind power, rockets and non-Newtonian fluid at the Energy Northwest Women in Nuclear (WIN) Kids Engineering Day event.

Over 50 volunteers representing six local companies participated in the event at Fuerza Elementary School in Kennewick, Washington, sponsoring 23 tables of activities teaching various properties of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). 

This was the first time EN WIN has hosted the event since 2019. Other agencies that participated include Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Framato​me’s Young Generation in Nuclear chapter, the Washington Department of Health, Reach Museum and Central Plateau Cleanup Company.

Hannah Moss, Energy Northwest Operations, talks with a participant about how engineers create strong structures.
