STEMFest Inspires and Engages

What brought hundreds of elementary, middle and high school students to the Statesboro Campus in September? The 2019 STEMFest hosted by the College of Education’s Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education, the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing, and the College of Science and Mathematics. The young students were treated to a variety of fun-filled activities that allowed them to explore the wonders of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Festivalgoers made ice cream with liquid nitrogen, launched Alka-Seltzer rockets and made magnetic slime  — just to name a few activities. The interactive event is designed to get kids and their parents excited about STEM education. The free event was held in the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center.
