The “Society of Women Engineers” hosted the sixth annual “Imagineer Day.”

Kindergarteners through third graders got to play with bubbles, dancing robots, floating boats and traction quicksand.

While fourth graders to sixth graders had fun with jet cars, renewable energy circuits and an egg drop.

We asked Shelby Freese, section president of the “Society of Women Engineers,” how the kids felt about the fun day.

“Um, pure excitement to be honest there really excited to be here a lot of the kids are returning this year. There’s only a small amount of new kids so it’s great to see these kids come back and having that interest in engineering, that way we can maintain that throughout their high school careers and college,” Freese said.

The kids went home at about 2 p.m. Saturday the “Society of Women Engineers” host this event every spring semester.
