How does a STEM festival work?

STEM Festivals are organized like a street festival or county fair, attendees stroll from activity to activity at their leisure. This awe-inspiring day will feature compelling, educational and entertaining activities, performances and exhibits to boost children's interest in STEM and parents in STEM related job opportunities.
