This event is focused on teaching hands-on STEM activities to let kids decide if Engineering/STEM is a career path they would consider in their future.

Students will go through 3 activities focused on different kinds of engineering taught by local technologists. Events include: a STEM Expo which are small activities provided by local companies, surrounding universities, and professional organizations; then students break into groups to begin the 3 activities (1 hr a piece).

While the students are learning, there is a separate event for the adults. Adults will be educated on everything they might need to keep the students interested in STEM, college prep, financial aid, even community opportunities for internships.

Adults will learn their own STEM activity that they will be able to take home to teach the students what they learned.

Cost: $5 a student. The event is limited to 200 students (100 middle and 100 high school). This event sells out every year.

This is promoted as a female event, but males are allowed and attend every year. More details here.
