Last year, the Festival started a program to connect Middle School STEMs with STEM Professoinals. The Match kicked off successfully in several counties. In many cases, it was the first time students met a STEM professional It was a highly rewardoing experience for the professionals, the teachers and the students. See below for a thank you letter and photos from last year's event.

Thank You from Annapolis Middle School (an event participant)
"I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for organizing an outstanding STEM festival at Annapolis Middle School. Your efforts to bring together a diverse group of STEM professionals to showcase their work and engage with students is truly commendable.
As I traveled throughout classrooms, I was impressed by the variety of experiences shared with students and students’ curiosity about each career and pathway. It was refreshing to see such a diverse group of professionals representing different fields of STEM. The event was a great opportunity for students to learn about the many exciting careers in STEM and to explore the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math.
I appreciate the hard work and dedication that went into planning and executing this event. It was well-organized, and everything ran smoothly. Your team's efforts to ensure that all students had an opportunity to interact with the professionals who visited was exceptional.
Thank you, again, for organizing this wonderful STEM festival. I look forward to hosting the festival again in the coming years."
