Imagination and Science Center held engineering event for children

MONONGALIA COUNTY, W.Va. (WDTV)-- The Spark! Imagination and Science Center held an engineering event for children on Saturday morning.

Those ages five and up got to explore the basics of engineering with hands-on activities.

Kids stopped at different stations to experience different aspects of engineering.

An official from the center, Maria Francis, said this is a great way to get young minds engaged into a possible future career.

"It's a very, like a eureka moment," Francis said. "So when you figure it out, you're like, 'Oh I did it, I learned how to do it,' and then it's rewarding for them," she said.

The Spark! Imagination and Science Center holds Science Saturdays once a month.
