STEM Fair!

We’re looking for hands-on STEM activity exhibits and interactive STEM demonstrations for the STEM Fair! Is your organization/business interested in having a booth at the STEM Fair? Email
Make it a family outing! A STEM Fair will be set up during the event to provide fun, hands-on STEM activities and interactive demonstrations for all ages. Adult chaperones and non-participant children can purchase a lunch for the event on the registration page.



Do you have a career in STEM? Consider making a STEM career presentation! Career presentations will be a connection for students to see what they can do with the skills they have learned while preparing for and competing in their challenge. The presentation will be paired with a presentation from OC Tech staff about college programs relating to the students’ challenge/ possible careers.
