The 2021 Festival is in the books! 


We feel it has been another impactful year despite the ongoing COVID obstacles.  We would appreciate your feedback on the events you have attended and ask you take a few minutes to complete  our short survey

We have recorded a number of virtual events that we hope you will watch and enjoy.  The list of recorded events and links are below.  STEM is for everyone – and all the time, not just once a year.  We will be involved with a number of events in the upcoming year – and will keep you informed of what we are doing.  Many of our hosts have STEM events frequently.  You can access them from our website  to see what they are up to.

Next month we will be sending out 2021 Annual Report and the first bits of information about the 2022 Festival

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, .
