REDDING - Children at Turtle Bay on Saturday learned what it's like to be an engineer.

Officials with the park say kids of all ages explored the different types of engineering jobs by learning how to build structures, roadways and explore space.

It’s all part of their stem program, which the park is pushing through fun activities and competitions on Saturdays.

“We’re trying to be on the stem focus now I know there is a big push throughout the country and especially in the North State and we're trying to support that as much as we can,” said Jake Ewald. 

“I don't care if I win or lose I’m just happy that I can make it and can compete,” said Kiah Kelly.

The science day ended with a competition to see who could build the tallest structure out of dry spaghetti noodles, tape and rope which could hold a marshmallow.
