Northeast Iowa Family STEM Festival - Manchester

 

The Northeast Iowa Family STEM Festival will be held Thursday, October 27 from 4PM to 7PM at the Community Center on the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Manchester.

Organized like a street festival or county fair, visitors stroll from activity to activity at their leisure. All ages are welcome to attend. Exhibits will feature interactive STEM activities for students and their families. Attendees may conduct amazing science experiments, observe a variety of fascinating animals, perform surgery with a Laparoscopic Surgical Trainer, measure electricity usage of common electronic devices, and much more!
