Ohio State Lima looked to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics Saturday morning.

OSU Lima held the STEAM on the Quad event, where about 40 activities surrounding STEAM-related fields were at the campus for kids to learn and have fun.  The event was put on by OSU Lima in collaboration with the 4-H programs of Allen, Putnam, and Hardin counties, and those that put on the event hope that children will consider steam based careers in the future.

"The fastest growing sector of jobs is in science, technology, engineering, math, that's the fastest growing area, so the sooner we get kids excited about that, the sooner that they can be thinking about that as a job and starting to focus on taking those classes and having those experiences," said Leah Herner-Patnode, Academic Program Coordinator for Education for OSU Lima.

Around 200 children participated in the event.
