Register at Utah STEM Fest

Purpose:
Our purpose is to bring students, families, educators and business leaders together to showcase future opportunities for youth in both education tracks and career opportunities that align with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) disciplines. This is a great opportunity to change the perception that jobs in construction, manufacturing, automotive and energy require little to no skills. These are not our grandfather's jobs!

Objectives:

  • Attract kids, and their support groups, from all over Utah to attend and be exposed to the dynamic and exciting atmosphere around technology and science.
  • To help kids connect with their passion for innovation and to spark their imaginations as they see, touch, feel and experience a wide range of exciting interactive exhibits
  • Have kids and parents walk away with a new excitement about science, technology, engineering and math
  • To help overcome objections about STEM: (too hard, uncool, incomprehensible, a boy's world)
