We are only accepting grades 6-10 this year.
The STEM Action Center strives to make STEM Fest a meaningful, hands-on experience for students and adults; the team has worked to ensure that all exhibitors know that this is a hands-on event. Our primary goal is for all students to be engaged and learning about STEM, and its many applications and impacts.
We know what works to provide a fun, engaging and sane experience for everyone, and we will apply lessons learned from last year and return this event to the high-quality experience you have come to know.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com to share ideas, concerns and provide feedback.
We strongly recommend that all students and chaperones bring a smart device.
