For more than 10 years, STEM Fest has introduced thousands of visitors of all ages to the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. This year, NIU is bringing STEM Fest online, with free virtual events throughout the month of October, a few in-person workshops at NIU regional centers, and a live virtual celebration on Oct. 31. All online events are free; in-person workshops have a fee for materials.

Weekly activities include:

Maker Mondays: Weekly videos aimed primarily at teens with a focus on STEM Careers. Each video interview with a STEM expert is followed by a hands-on activity.

STEM Fest Cafés: Live webinars every Wednesday evening with STEM experts. Join us on Oct. 7 and Oct. 28 for fun family cafés about reptiles and amphibians and the science behind haunted houses.

STEM Saturdays: Weekly workshops – online or in-person – provide hands-on STEM learning. Different options available for grades 3-12; details on our website.
