TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Fourth graders from the Tupelo Public School District spent Tuesday morning learning about science, technology, engineering and math at the STEM Fair.

The event was a collaboration of the Tupelo CDF, Toyota and the Mississippi School for Math and Science.

Students visited booths to experience different aspects of STEM programs and how they can use them in the future.

"With Imagine the Possibilities going on in the eighth grade and Connect Career Fair as seniors, we thought we'd touch a lower grade, the fourth grade from Tupelo public schools, to get them to introduce to STEM," said Molly Lovorn of CDF.

There were demonstrations in math, physics, inertia, chemistry, as well as biology. Many of the booths were based on superheroes or cartoons.
