Experience an immersive festival celebrating Steam Power and S.T.E.A.M. with a Steampunk theme
Science fiction and Science come together for one day of educational activities and 2 days of Entertainment, Vendors, Workshops and Panels.
S.T.E.A.M. is an Educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math as access points for guiding students inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. S.T.E.A.M. has been brought to the forefront of schools curriculum in recent years. S.T.E.A.M. is a movement championed by Rhode Island School of Design & widely adopted by educational institutions, corporations and individuals.
The S.T.E.A.M. festival is here to make learning fun with Steampunk themed workshops, games, vendors and entertainment; united through the power of imagination and shaped with the aesthetic of Time Travelers, Tinkerers and Steampunks. It’s the worlds of Jules Verne and Leonardo Da Vinci played out exclusively at old train towns and museums across the western United States. Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. A perfect fit for the existing train museums that feature Steam engines and other extinct technology.
Gates open Saturday and Sunday at 10AM until 5PM and will have Music, Science, Costumed fun and Workshops scheduled throughout the day.
