The Wake Forest Technology Advisory Board is inviting area middle and high school students and their parents to Wake Forest STEM Saturday 2019 on Saturday, April 13, 2019, 10am-2pm.

Presented by the Wake Forest Wireless Research Center, this free, family networking fair will take place at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S Brooks Street, Wake Forest, North Carolina.

Celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, STEM Saturday will expose students to a variety of STEM career options, while featuring 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 are expected to include the importance of supporting children’s interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and the importance of attracting girls to fun and fascinating careers in these fields.

The event will also feature several interactive booths where representatives from a variety of local businesses, schools and organizations will interact with parents and students, share professional insights and experiences, and offer an array of interesting demonstrations.

Through the April 13 event, 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.

Space is limited so registration is strongly encouraged at www.wakeforestnc.gov/stem-saturday.aspx.  Every student who registers will be automatically entered in a prize drawing.

The Wake Forest STEM event is being sponsored by the Wake Forest Wireless Research Center, Ting, and Code Ninjas. Additional sponsorship opportunities may be available.
