TAB invites local students & parents to STEM Saturday March 28

The Wake Forest Technology Advisory Board is inviting area middle school and high school students and their families to the 2020 Wake Forest STEM Saturday networking fair on Saturday, March 28. Celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, this free family event is scheduled from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St.

Designed to expose students to a variety of STEM career options, STEM Saturday will feature STEM-related exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on learning activities. Parents can attend a panel discussion with some of our area’s top experts and STEM-related career professionals. Discussion topics include the importance of supporting children’s interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and how to select the appropriate coursework for careers in STEM fields.

Sponsored by the Wake Forest Wireless Research Center, Ting, Code Ninjas, Cricket Wireless and Linchpin SEO, STEM Saturday will also feature several interactive booths where representatives from local businesses, schools and organizations will interact with parents and students, share professional insights and experiences, and offer an array of interesting demonstrations.

Through STEM Saturday, youth can experience the wonders of STEM hands-on, encouraging them to one day pursue a degree or occupation in one of the related fields.
