Isn’t it fantastic when fun is aligned with learning? That seems to be the design goal behind the STEAM Carnival, a production of Two Bit Circus. Recently they staged their event at the Port of Los Angeles to a sell-out crowd whereat all the glory of what they do was put out for the world to enjoy.

Most of these playful exhibits were accompanied by an explanatory sign which detailed such things as how it was fabricated, what skills are required, and what the science was behind it. However, overwhelmingly the biggest feature is fun.

Can you see the fun and learning principles in this variety of video snippets?

What a great way to learn!
