This event is for grades 6-10 .
Families and younger students are welcome to attend our free Family Night, Monday, October 7th from 4:30-8:30pm.
Our goal is for all student attendees to be engaged and learning about STEM, STEM careers, and its many applications and impacts. That means the STEM Action Center team has worked to ensure that all exhibitors know that this is a hands-on event.
We strongly recommend that all students and chaperones bring a smart device, but leave this up to schools to determine if that will work with their school activity policies. We also suggest leaving any other school equipment, such as backpacks, at the school building as there is no place to store them at the event. Bags with medical and other needed supplies are of course welcome, as are chaperone purses and bags.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com to share ideas, concerns and provide feedback.
