This year’s STEM fair had something for everyone. There were workshops about cryptocurrency, genetic engineering, and VR animation. Students showcased classwork that ranged from hand-made pinball machines to experiments in space. Presenters encouraged visitors to tinker with paper airplanes, dissect pig hearts, and code little robots. There was even a musical performance by Tom McFadden’s Science Rap Academy.
For many students, the annual event is more than a celebration of the STEM fields. It’s an opportunity to see themselves as capable scientists, engineers, and mathematicians with meaningful research and inventions to contribute to the world.
