NEW HOPE (WTVA) -- Tuesday was STEM night at New Hope Middle School.
About 300 elementary and middle school students, along with their families, learned about how science, technology, engineering and math are used in the real world.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Thirty-eight companies and organizations like Four Power Electric, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and WTVA were on hand to talk all things STEM.
WTVA Chief Meteorologist Matt Laubhan and reporter Alisa Anderson were there, giving kids a little lesson on broadcasting and weather.
This is the fifth year for the event which brings the community to experience the joy of science.
