This event brings youth and families face-to-face with STEM experts from aeronautics to environmental engineering to robotics—and everything in between. Community partners and industry exhibitors will be showcasing how STEM plays a part in their work everyday.


All presentations will take place at the museum. Teams will be assigned a judging time during which they will present to a panel of industry & education representatives.
