It’s not every day you get to stick your hands in slime or save a superhero stuck in ice.

Local preschoolers had a hands-on opportunity to learn about science Saturday, Jan. 25, at Kiddie Academy of Frankfort’s STEM Adventures event, which featured a variety of interactive projects geared toward science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“All the STEM activities have been a hit,” said Julie Wimmer, Kiddie Academy’s assistant director. “Our theme this year is superheroes — who doesn’t love a superhero?”
