LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Laredoans are recognized for their methods of promoting education.
The Board of Directors of the Imaginarium of South Texas hosted the annual "Imagine Awards" event.
The Board made selections of local individuals that have inspired others in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They have recently started recognizing individuals in the field of the arts, as well.
"We started understanding that art plays a very important role in technology and science," said Oscar Lopez, of the Imaginarium Board of Directors. "So we went from being 'STEM-driven' to 'STEAM-driven.' The acronym is for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics."
This was the fourth annual "Imagine Awards" event.
