The Maryland STEM Festival is a month-long celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics that takes place every Fall. In 2021, we'll be bringing hundreds of events focused on fun, interactive science learning opportunities. Students, families, friends, STEM professionals, teachers, volunteers will all enjoy events taking place throughout Maryland.
The Festival highlights the educational, cultural and financial impact of science in this state. Through hands-on activities, talks, lab tours, nature experiences, expos, exhibits and performances, the Festival engages a wide range of public audiences while inspiring future generations.
This Festival cultivates a positive environment that inspires children to pursue science-related careers and encourages businesses to invest in Maryland. In an era when recent reports indicate that the United States is losing ground as the world leader in science and technology, and fewer students than ever are seeking careers in science and technology, the Festival energizes our state’s efforts to respond to these challenges.
