PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - UMES held its third annual STEM Festival where hundreds of grade school children gathered to learn more on the sciences and technologies.

STEM is a program to teach students certain tools -- science, technology, engineering and math.

Over twenty exhibitions were on hand including 3-D printers, flight simulators, robotics and virtual reality goggles.

There is a new section to this year's event, agriculture, turning this into a STEAM event.

"A lot of our events incorporate agriculture.  We have agricultural experiments here, potatoes using them to conduct electricity, also have an exhibit on bees, so it's really important that that's apart of stem," said Jocelyn Koller, STEM senior agent associate.

The event took place at the Engineering Aviation and Sciences Complex, you can find more info about the university's aviation and sciences at umes.edu.
