3rd Annual Arkansas STEM Festival on March 3rd at UALR

Arkansas STEM Festival is initiated by LISA Academy with the cooperation of USA Science Festival and UALR…

Arkansas STEM Festival is initiated by LISA Academy with the cooperation of USA Science Festival and UALR. A great variety of exploration stations will provide hands-on activities that bring opportunity for engagement and exchange between children, teens, families, and local STEM professionals. Students and parents are invited to a festival of ACTIVITIES and EXHIBITS designed to EXPLORE, CREATE, MAKE, and LEARN more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
 
This year, our theme is “Hello, World!”, which symbolizes a successfully executed line of code that can be transformed into something that could potentially benefit a large number of people. In addition, the festival is a great way for Arkansas’ young computer scientists and programmers to literally say hello to the world through their work. The double meaning of “Hello, World!” is ultimately what made it the best choice to be the theme of the 3rd Annual Arkansas STEM Festival. The event will be held at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on March 3 in the Donaghey Student Center.
 
Registration is required to attend (Click here to register) Please note that students attending the Festival with their parents/guardians should visit the registration table to receive an excused absence.
