We Do STEM Expos
We coordinate on-campus NOVA STEM Days, engage with local STEM events at libraries and schools, participate in Maker Faires, and bring STEM to large community events and educational conferences such as Celebrate Fairfax, Youth For Tomorrow's Country Fair & Auctions, and the USA Science & Engineering Festival.
NOVA STEM Day
NOVA STEM Day is a showcase of Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math on designated NOVA campuses throughout the year. Featuring excellent exhibits, awesome hands-on activities and wonderful workshops, NOVA STEM Days are lively learning opportunities for students of all ages. Each year NOVA STEM Days attract between 2500 and 3000 people to a NOVA campus.
Our activities are taught by NOVA faculty and community educators (with college and high school students on hand to help out). Students can complete a STEM passport by engaging in specific activities for a chance to win grand prizes. NOVA STEM Days are free and fantastic for families!
Regional STEM Expos
Since 2015, over a million people have had the opportunity to see one of our STEM exhibits at Expos across the region. In addition to NOVA STEM Days, our signature Expo events are Celebrate Fairfax, the STEMZone at Youth For Tomorrow, the USA Science & Engineering Festival in DC, and Maker Faires.
We Support Local STEM Expos
We support local schools and organizations that are like-minded in integrating STEM into the community. Big or small, we may be able to support your event with exciting hands-on activities for students in elementary school through college and beyond.
