The STEM3 Academy Very Special Innovation Fair is equal parts science fair, high-tech exhibition, art show, and community carnival. The free event will be a family-friendly showcase of talent, imagination, and discovery from young STEM enthusiasts and some of the region’s innovative companies.
Inspired in part by the Maker Movement, the event will have specific areas geared toward grade school, middle school, and high school ages and interests. In each area, there will be interactive opportunities for young people and families to build things, get involved in experiments and demonstrations, and take various gadgets for a ‘test drive.’
The Very Special Innovation Fair will allow hundreds of attendees to have a first-person experience in a range of STEM-related fields, including rocketry, robotics, 3D printing and production, virtual reality, and others. There will also be food and giveaways.
