It’s that time again for the spring Arizona Sci-Tech Festival, at numerous locales all over the state.  This is a family friendly festival in February and March, exposing adults and children to the wonders of science and technology (and engineering & math too).

For Pima County events, go to this link:  http://azscitech.com/events/ (and click on “Pima County” on the right, wait for the link to load.) And look for their brochures at the Pima County public libraries, with event listings.

The Arizona SciTech Festival is a state-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM or STEAM when you include the arts) held annually in February and March.

Through a series of over 400 expos, workshops, conversations, exhibitions and tours held in diverse neighborhoods throughout the state, the Arizona SciTech Festival excites and informs Arizonans from ages 3 to 103 about how STEM will drive our state for next 100 years.

    Over 700 students will attend the Metropolitan Education Commission’s Key to Employment for the 21st Century Symposium on the U/A campus. It is scheduled for February 11, 2015 and the focus is STEM. Over 50 local employers/firms are scheduled to participate in the event which gives students an opportunity to discuss jobs, higher education requirements, possible internships, and to tour the U/A campus. We are very proud to participate in the Arizona Sci-Tech Festival.

  2. My father was heavily involved with this up here in Phoenix, both as an administrator and as a Judge, and he loved it. I used to help him out when I could, and I can teel you from first hand experience that this is a VERY worthwhile event that deserves support. The young people that go through this move on to greater things; things like College Degrees, well paying jobs and satisfying careers. It is worth your time!

      Yes, we well know the importance of STEM education. Our son has a Master’s degree in an aquaculture field and actually has a job in that area of research. He was always interested in science fairs, field trips and workshops as a young child.This Sci-Tech Festival exposes children to all area of science, technology, engineering & math.
