The return of STEMFest scheduled for Sept. 22

On Saturday, September 22, Georgia Southern University’s Institute of Interdisciplinary STEM Education (i2STEMe) will be re-introducing one of the University’s most popular past events–STEMFest!

The event will be held on the Statesboro Camps in the Nessmith-Lane Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and provides exploration stations with hands-on STEM learning activities for elementary, middle and high-school aged children. The event is free and open to the public.

“We were disheartened when we were not able to offer this event in 2017,” explained Kania Greer, i2STEMe coordinator, “and the large response from the public let us know they were disappointed as well. We knew that if at all possible, we had to bring STEMFest back this year.”

The goal of STEMFest is to host an interactive event that gets PK-12 students and their parents excited about STEM education. Activities include a mobile innovation lab, launching Alka-seltzer rockets, archaeology projects, robotics, making ice cream with liquid nitrogen and more.

“It takes a village to make this event happen, so we are reaching out now to ask for support–whether that’s financial support, volunteering your time, or hosting an activity booth–we need you,” said Greer.
