Veolia Sponsors STEM Alliance's STEM-tastic Festival
After a 3-year hiatus due to the pandemic, The STEM Alliance will be hosting their 7th STEM-tastic – a free festival for over 1,000 people which brings STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering & Math – to life with dozens of hands-on activities. This festival will be held on May 12, 2023, 6:00pm - 9:00pm at Hommocks Middle School in Larchmont, NY.
STEM-tastic will be providing fun for all ages, giving children and their families the opportunity to spark their interest in STEM disciplines by participating in various challenges. Families will be experiencing space with SkyDome, exploring circuits with iCamp, exploring the science of sound with Bach To Rock, and much more with over 30 expert-led experiences. This evening event will bring STEM learning to a whole new level as kids learn, touch, do, create, build and innovate.
