TechFest TM is free family fun with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Those attending were able to participate in approximately 70 hands-on experiences with STEM exhibits, demonstrations and games. Stage and theater speakers, such as a NASA astronaut or an Air Force test pilot, an outstanding college professor, a classical guitar player and others deliver entertaining and informative talks on STEM topics. This event is sponsored by the Affiliate Societies Council of Dayton, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Students from the Community Connectors Grant attended with their mentors and were able to talk to some of the students studying for STEM careers and those already working in their fields of study.
