Hundreds of young scientists, parents, friends, educators and others converged on the Shoreline Community College campus Saturday, May 9, for the third annual Shoreline STEM Festival.

“It was just so inspiring, so much energy,” Shoreline President Cheryl Roberts said after her remarks at the awards ceremony.

Roberts also thanked Shoreline resident Ray Koelling, who initiated the festival three year ago and the committee of community members who came together to make the festival happen.
