Hampton, Va- The Hampton chapter of Links, Inc. has partnered up with The Virginia STEM Innovations Network Partners to design the Pure Genius, A STEM U LATING Event.

The goal of the program is to provide hands-on inquiry and project-based learning experiences that will increase successful learner outcomes on state standardized STEM related exams. This also allows kids the opportunity to be inspired so that they can visualize themselves as future scientists, technological experts, engineers and mathematicians.

Children from grades 4-6 will attend along with guests such as Congressman Bobby Scott and Vice-Mayor Linda Curtis.

The event will take place this Saturday, February 21, 2015 at the Hampton Center for Performing Arts.
