Science and Engineering Festival at YV Tech

YAKIMA, Wash. -- YV Tech is hosting the third annual UW Science and Engineering Festival.

Students showed off their skills Tuesday and will again on Wednesday.

A federal education grant pays for the event.

Kids and adults can learn interactively. Organizers hope it sparks future careers.

"Before I used to look at like it's just another class," high school student Mireya Osorio said. "But now I realize the importance of engineering and how it does affect us everyday."

The festival will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday.
