Every October, the Maryland STEM Festival is a month-long celebration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Hundreds of activities centered on enjoyable, interactive scientific learning opportunities were held in 2021. Events will be held around Maryland for students, families, friends, STEM professionals, instructors, and volunteers.
The Festival emphasizes science’s educational, cultural, and economic value in this state. The Festival engages a wide spectrum of public audiences while inspiring future generations through hands-on activities, seminars, lab visits, natural experiences, expos, exhibitions, and performances.
This Festival fosters a good climate that encourages corporations to invest in Maryland and encourages youth to pursue science-related vocations. In an era when recent studies show that the United States is losing momentum as a world leader in science and technology, and fewer students than ever are interested in such careers, the Festival energises our state’s efforts to address these difficulties.
