Tech Fest! STEM Fests (formerly Expos) brought together students and STEM organizations to explore, engage, and evolve on Friday, November 9, 2018 at The Frontier in Research Triangle Park put on by STEM in the Park. The Fest was broken down into three components.
Think: Problem-solving session based on a topic posed by a STEM organization. Groups are 5-7 middle/high school students with 1-5 STEM professionals. Discussion is aided by worksheet that flows through design thinking. Professionals provide guidance and encouragement to students during the session. Short presentation at end of the session to share 1-2 solutions developed by students.

Imagine: In this session, STEM professionals engage students by sharing the inner workings of their job through hands-on demos.

Meet: STEM professionals engage in multiple short conversations with students to share the real life journey to becoming a STEM professional (formerly called Speed Mentoring)
