Wabash Valley STEM Fest to be held June 12

News

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Wabash Valley STEM Fest has been pushed back this year to June 12. It will be held at Sullivan Middle School.

This is the fifth year for the one-day event that’s usually held in March. K-12 kids will have the opportunity to work with robots, even bugs and natural resources.

Purdue Extension officials said they can see upward of 300 kids participate in the event.
Registration for the event closes on June 4.

“I think a lot of kids don’t realize what stem necessarily means and how it can take them into different careers, so we want to open their eyes to what stem means outside of a school setting, give them some hands-on experiences to see what a career in stem might look like,” Brooke Stefancik with Purdue Extension said.

It is $10 to register, or a maximum of $20 per household. You can call the Purdue Extension office to register at 812-268-4332 or go to Wabash Valley STEM Fest Facebook page.
