EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Area families gathered Thursday night to learn more about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Family STEM night took place at Sam Davey Elementary School in Eau Claire.

School leaders say they expected about 250 children and their families to participate in the activities centered around technology and engineering.

They say several organizations from the Chippewa Valley showcased their stem-related products.

The goal is to get students interested in science.

"We are very much interested in their career development, so even at the elementary level we start talking about possible careers and stem careers one of the things we would really like to have happen is to have girls become interested in stem, science and engineering it's part of our focus here at Sam Davey Elementary," said Principal Bill Giese.

Principal Bill Giese said the event has grown every year.
