In reality, watching a teacher doing problems on the blackboard is a lot less exciting than seeing a real-life engineer explain how those same equations apply to building a space shuttle. With today’s technology exploding into millions of lucrative jobs, there are plenty of STEM-related career paths students may be missing out on—and plenty of educational resources that remain untapped. By gathering the best components of the school field trip experience and putting them together in one place, STEMfair gives kids the opportunity to see real world applications of their classroom studies in some of the coolest fields out there. From awesome demos to hands-on activities, STEMfair goes far beyond the traditional “science fair” to get everyone excited about learning.
With the current trend of American students struggling to keep up with their global peers in the STEM concentrations, we believe it is important to help motivate students to become more active in pursuing STEM fields. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create fun and stimulating events to get kids talking, exploring, and experiencing the world of STEM. If you are interested in bringing the STEMfair to your school, would like to become a presenter or sponsor in one of our upcoming events, or would like to make a donation to our cause, feel free to browse this website for more information or contact us today!
STEMfair is an Illinois-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to furthering the exploration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects for kids. STEMfair partners with local school districts to develop, promote and run events tailored to elementary school and secondary school-aged students that:
