Exhibitor Information:  STEM Career Days

STEM Career Day for Boys will have 250-350 students, teachers, chaperones, and STEM Career Day for Girls will have 450-550.  The boy's event will handle four to six one table exhibitors and the girls event can accept up to 4 exhibitors due to space constraints. Over 20 school districts are typically reached.  As groups arrive at different times, our staff needs a full hour to check everyone in.  Students are given the opportunity to explore a wide variety of STEM exhibits during this hour. 
 
Exhibitors are asked to provide a fun, engaging, hands-on exhibit to get students thinking about STEM as soon as they walk in the door. Exhibits must be creative, provide education in STEM, be hands-on, age appropriate (7-8th grade) and be staffed during the scheduled time.  Exhibitors are not allowed to sell items at the event.
