A Celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics in West Columbia, SC

About the Festival

The iMAGINE STEAM Festivals have partnered with West Columbia's Kinetic Derby Day!

The 2023 festival featured the return of the kinetic sculpture parade, soapbox racing, obstacle course racing, and the inaugural iMAGINE STEAM Festival.

Each introduced families to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) through engaging and fun activities designed to ignite the interests of Pre-K through 12th-grade students (and their families) in STEAM subjects by giving them exposure to STEAM careers, skilled trades jobs, and education pathways.
