Grandin, who was the subject of an award-winning HBO movie and who has written several books and developed new innovations for cattle processing, will speak at 2 p.m. at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont,.

“I want to experience the wonder of hands-on learning at STEAM Fest,” Grandin said. “It’s so important that we continue to shift education, at all levels, to more interactive lessons, where people are engaging with real-world materials and solving real-world challenges.”

The Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest is a two-day, family-friendly event celebrating science, technology, entrepreneurship, art and making.

“Grandin’s story is proof-positive that extraordinary things happen when learners have the opportunity to experience curriculum through roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-dirty experiments, problem-solving and prototyping, and you’ll see all that at STEAM Fest,” said organizer Martha Lanaghen.
