In the Rocky Mountains, we are celebrating all things creative, imaginative and exploratory at a festival extraordinaire. The Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest (Science, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Making) is an awe-filled, jaw-dropping chance to tinker, hack, build, crumble, fly, drive, drink, do, dabble and PLAY! The third annual Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest, produced by Maker Bolder, will be held at Longmont’s Boulder County Fairgrounds, 9595 Nelson Rd., Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day.
STEAM Fest is a festival that focuses on hands-on, experiential activities, entertainment and education from exhibitors like Google, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Play-Well Teknologies. This year exhibits will feature everything from human-sized Minecraft and handweaving to computer programming and model railroads. You can expect arts and crafts, LEGOS, marble tracks, building and making, robots and electronics, science in action and food and drink from local food truck vendors and craft breweries throughout the weekend.
This year’s STEAM Fest is shaping up to be bigger and badder than ever with the exciting addition of Combat Robots. Do you have a one-pound or three-pound combat robot (SPARC Compatible) you would like to take into battle? Sign up here for a STEAM Fest battle of EPIC proportions. Both Saturday and Sunday, Combat Robot classes, battles and all-around fun will be available, and entrance is included with your STEAM Fest ticket.
